    I got an egg this morning from my hen. She is about maybe 5 months old. But this morning the shell had blood on it. Does this happen every once in awhile? Or could there be something wrong? Any commets would be grateful.

    Oh this is not her first egg.

    All my hens had a little blood on their first couple eggs. After laying for a week none of them had any blood again.

    This is about 7 or so. So I was wondering that maybe she was sick. Thanks for letting me know it has happened to you also.
