    Hello!
    I think this is a first egg for one of my chickens and i'm wondering if the smudge of blood on it is anything to worry about. (the smudge is not much but it is more obvious in real life.)[​IMG]
    Thanks for your help

    Nope. Perfectly normal. Some get a bit of blood and some don't.

    Thanks! I've had some more strange ones since then, but still nothing is better than a backyard chicken egg!
