    Hoping this picture uploads. So I was cooking eggs on the stove, and noticed a red spot in the white of the egg. I just thought it was a meat spot, we get them occasionally. Apon looking closer, I saw a white "worm" looking thing. I picked it out to make sure I was seeing correctly. It was not moving. I placed it on a paper towel and several hours later it has shriveled up into this brown "skin".
    The chickens are just under 30 weeks old, and have never been wormed. I had planned on doing it when egg production slows this fall.
    Is this actually a worm? Is there a chance my whole family has worms now? We do eat runny yolk.
