    You sure it's not poop? It's looks like poop on the shell and also looks like the same thing on the yolk. Do you know from which hen(s) this is happening from?

    Someone just posted a similar picture in the last week. How old are the eggs? Pseudomonas and staphylococcus bacteria can infect eggs sometimes. There is a good article about "common egg quality problems" if you Google it or do a search at the top of this page.

    "why are my eggs rotten?" is a thread from May 3rd that you can read by going to the top of this page and entering that in the search box. It has similar pictures. 9
