I've had chickens for 7 years and found this in an egg for the first time! It's located at the air sac end and looks like a mini heart...

Any thoughts?? The eggs are not fertilised.

Looks like a meat spot, it happens sometimes a piece of the lining of the ovarian track comes off and is included in the eggs during its development. It’s normal and you can eat them. I personally don’t just because. Lol. But that’s just me.

I recently found the same thing in two eggs from one of my ducks. I had no idea what it could be. Thanks for the explanation. If it keeps happening, is it cause for concern? Would that indicate a health problem?
