    I keep finding these brownish red vein looking things on the yolks of my eggs. Back story, I have 5 chickens but only have ever received 4 eggs in a day.[​IMG]

    Often you'll see these reddish/ brown bits in eggs, especially in young chickens. No, it is not a forming chick.They are fine to eat. This photo may help:
