    I just want to be sure. I get small blood spots once in awhile, I understand that it is fine to eat eggs with the bloo spot there. I dont have a rooster. On a couple of other eggs i had a few grains of darker material, looked like dirt or something. Couldthat be sand? Do i need to be concerned? If it was worms, would i clearly see wiggly creatures?

    I was wondering the same thing about the red spots. We don't have a rooster either, but get bloody spots occasionally. My wife hates the spots. Just wondering what caused them.

    I have never had blood spots on my eggs. I know its from tiny blood vessels breaking during the laying process. Does having a roo increase the likeliness of this? One of my girls lays eggs with little white spots I'm not sure what that means.
