I've read about blood spots and meat spots. I've done a BYC search to find more information, but I haven't found anything like this. My Jersey Giant's eggs don't have what is typically considered a blood spot. Her eggs almost always have spots and/or specks in them. Sometimes it's several blackish/brownish specks in the white, other times it's a spot on the yolk - possibly a blood spot but not red or brown usually. It usually looks like bits of dirt. Even though I'm getting up to 18 eggs a day from my flock, I can tell which egg is hers (because the shell is really pretty - it has spots, too!), and I always set it aside. I don't ever put one of her eggs in the cartons of eggs that I sell. While I know eggs with spots are okay to eat, they are gross. So I usually crack it open to verify that it has spots/specks (and I don't remember the last time it didn't), and then I toss it. I should probably cook it and feed it to either the chickens or dogs. My question: Does anyone else have a hen that does that? What is causing the specks that aren't blood spots? Is there any solution other than to keep discarding all the eggs from that hen?
