    Hello all:

    I've noticed that many of the eggs from my hens have little floaties when you crack the eggs open. I've read that they are most likely blood spots or meat spots? (I think that's what I read). I was wondering if there was a way to prevent it? Is there a certain feed or diet that I can give them to help eliminate this issue? Thanks

    I dont think there is anything you can do to prevent it. The blood spots are caused by a burst blood vessel (at least that is what I have learned from reading here). I dont think it is anything to be concerned about. If they bother you, pick them out.
