    I hard boiled two eggs, peeled and cut. They both had a pinkish circle in the middle of the yolk.

    The eggs came from two separate chickens.

    Does anyone know what that was?

    No, I don't have the equip for pics yet. But I can describe better. The circle is pale in color and about the size of your little finger. It's not blood just a pigment.
