    Last week we found a black egg, but the black washed off it was just like a very very thick "bloom". We found another one of them today. When we cracked it open it smelled and looked 100% normal. We have several breeds of chickens, muskovy ducks, and Indian Runner ducks. I am worried that one of our hens may be ill.
