My 8 year old daughter went out to collect the eggs this morning and found a egg with blood on it, we have 10 R.I.R HENS NO ROSTERS, they are all the same age around 6 to 7 months old we usually get around 8 to 9 eggs a day we have never found a egg with any blood on it. Please let me know what we should do??? my daughter Serenity is very worried about her chickens.THANK YOU IN ADVANCE GOD BLESS ALL AND HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND

It is not uncommon to have a smear of blood from time to time on an egg. That one seems particularly bloody however. If possible, I would closely check each hen's vent area to look for prolapse or any other abnormality. You can even have Serenity help you look. It's a good learning experience and may help ease her worries. If the hen has prolapse, there are a ton of threads to search on here for treatments. Best of luck and keep us posted.
