    Well this might not seem so bothersome that my Araucana's first egg laid had a decent amount of blood on it. I am worried because she has waited so long to lay her first egg. Is she struggling or should I just relax?

    Greetings from Kansas and [​IMG]! Great to have you with us! I don't think is anything to worry about - this happens from time to time and as you girl is just getting started she might just be getting her system in line. Keep an eye on subsequent eggs. Good luck to you!

    Welcome!
    I've read other posts about people seeing blood on the first egg so I think you are okay :)
