Hi folks,

I gave some eggs to my friend, and she sent me a very worried message! She cracked the egg open and said

"the yolk was more pink than yellow, and there was more yolk than white"

I have never had this in any of my eggs before! Any ideas what has caused this? Is this a partial development of the egg?!

Thanks very much!

Blood can get into an egg and sometimes little pieces of the oviduct too. It is harmless and the eggs are safe to eat. The blood is usually from a broken blood vessel.
