    Have been reading information from this site for about 2 years now and finally decided to join. I have 3 Bard Rock hens and 2 roosters, 1 Cayuga drake, 1 White Laying hen, 1 Welsh Harlequin hen, and 1 quail hen and 1 quail male. I do plan on expanding the ducks once I get the pen here in a few months.

    I am not new to having animals or fowl, but am new to raising primarily for eggs. I have a lot still left to learn because growing up I really only new about 5 different species of ducks, 8 breeds of chickens. So I am still learning about all of the different breeds and what are bred and raised for which reasons.

    I also chose to join because I have a question that concerned me a bit. I gathered eggs yesterday and today when I went to fry some up, I got a surprise when I cracked the egg into my pan. Here is the picture I took of the egg with blood in it.

    Welcome to BYC - so glad you've joined us. I love your avatar picture, is it of eggs from your birds?
    As to the blood in the egg -- I took a look at the link and while finding something like that can be disturbing when you have it happen to you, it isn't *that* concerning. There are all sorts of surprises that you can find in eggs - until/unless you notice it becoming a pattern rather than an oddity there's not much to worry about.

    I agree! I wouldn't worry about it too much unless it happens all the time. I have cracked open store bought eggs before there was red dots. A lot like blood. We just tossed it :)

    G’Day from down under Stiyu [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Thank you for the information. Yes, my avatar is a picture of the eggs from my birds. White are my duck, red are my bard rocks, and small ones came from the quail. Now I just need to know which duck laid the egg so I can keep an eye out.

    Thank you for all of the help and greetings everyone. I will be sure to fallow post and better myself as a bird grower. I do not know if there is a term for people who are all about farm birds.
