    One of my girls (I haven't figured out who yet) has been laying rather larger eggs, and sometimes the egg is laid with some blood on it. They are all less then a year old, and this past year has been my first experience with chickens. I don't know if this is just because she is making large eggs or if ther is something wrong [​IMG]

    I am wondering too! My Silver Duckwing OEGB hen laid an egg with blood on it. Scared the living daylights out of me! It was her first egg and it was (and still is) pretty big.
