    Most likely she'll be fine. Mine lay an extra-large egg every now and then, and it's usually got a few blood streaks on it. Minor bleeds with heal on their own. A major bleed, probably not.

    Thanks for your reply!! It's not alot of blood but she's acting like she wants to be left alone. She has white poop on her! I hope that's normal.

    Sad News!! I went out there this morning to check on them and she was dead! I guess maybe the egg was just too big for her to lay! It had a Double Yolk! She was a White Leghorn! She was 1 of 15 Pullets that we got them back in April. We've lost her and another just like her. I guess these things just happen!! I guess this means that we have 8 Layers now. [​IMG]
