    Hello,

    Out of my 8 hens, I have one that seems to be consistently laying eggs with lots of meat spots with some white colored spots as well. Is there anything in particular I should be worried about? Here are some pictures..

    Thanks![​IMG]

    These spots are perfectly fine to eat, and common in many hens, especially in hens a few years old. There is a good article by Sumi if you go to the top of this page and enter "common egg quality problems."
