I have found two eggs like this for two days. She is the dominant bird, and the only hen in my flock that lays eggs this colour (offwhite, almost pink), and on the first day I found one like this, she appeared to have laid two eggs in a day. One was normal, the other was bloody like this one. I collect at around the same time every day so I know there were two-- as I mentioned she is also the only hen in the flock that lays eggs that size and colour. The other chickens have been laying normally. I just switched the hens from grower feed to layer pellets. She seems to be acting normal, and I checked her vent, droppings, and gave her a close inspection-- nothing appears to be wrong otherwise.
Since she's technically a meat/game bird, should I be feeding her something else? My other hens are easter eggers and barred rocks. I keep this one because she is a great flock protector. I'm not sure she's 100% aseel but that's what she was labeled as when I got her. The guy at the feedstore layer for her was fine, but I don't really know that he's a reliable source of information. I've never kept games or meat birds, so I am not sure what to feed.
Is there anything I should be worried about?
