First off I have 14 hens and only one was laying so I knew where the egg came from. Then eventually one more started laying, each had a different color egg so i still knew. Well, it got SUPER cold here in CO a month or so back and lo and behold, hens that hadn't laid in MONTHS were laying again. It's still cold but now I am up to 7 eggs a day, so again I have no idea who is laying, who isn't and which egs belong to who. Ok so the easy question is this. One of them lays eggs with red spots on them. At first i thought it was blood speckles cause they are a deep blood red, light brown egg. If a hen is supposed to lay speckled eggs do those specks scrub off? I ask because my specks can be scrubbed off and I need to know if it's blood or supposed to be there, as I sell the eggs and don't want people grossing out. The other question makes me gag ugh. About 1 in every 2 dozen eggs or so that I know of (cause like I said i sell them) I break open an egg that is odd. It kind of sticks to the shell, and the yolk has it's regular color and mixed with it, what looks like partially cooked yolk. I wish I had a picture, it's hard to explain. But when you crack open 3 or 4 eggs in a bowl and they are normal, then you crack one of these, it makes you want to toss the whole bowl! But I just scoop the icky one out and toss it. We have never been sick from our eggs. Like i said it is still cold and i doubt it gets about 45-50 in the coop at full sun, so they aren't cooking. Far as i know they aren't freezing as i check for eggs many times a day, but once in a while I do get one that feels cold. They aren't old either. i have seen weeks old infertile incubated eggs look better than these fresh ones!!! So if anyone knows what I'm talking about, what causes this?? I won't have many repeat customers if they crack one of these motly eggs open!
