    Hello BYC Friends

    I have 6 hens - 2 young RI reds and 4 older Australorps - I have been getting larg-ish eggs every couple of days with a hole that had a bloody patch inside. I have looked about for "egg laying problems" and am pretty sure they are not pecked because of the bloody bit - any thoughts on what is going on?

    Here is a picture from this morning.

    Thanks for looking -
