Alright, so I have two pullets who've just started laying within the last couple of weeks. The other night I was cracking open some of their eggs to use in the kitchen, and I noticed a tiny clump of stuff about a third of the size of a pea on one of the yokes. I pulled it out and was trying to figure out what it was when my boyfriend suggested that it was feed. Yup, he was right. It WAS feed, just a few grains of it.

I figure that it's just an "oops" that happened because they are so new to laying, but it made me wonder if anyone else has had this happen? I would imagine it's not a huge problem, since I have seen meat slivers and blood flecks in eggs before.

Yea don't worry about it. The first couple eggs sometimes are just a mess lol. The hen has no idea what its doing and sometimes screws up. Nothing to worry about. The next couple will be fine.
