    Fresh eggs sonmetimes have these spots. They are absorbed over time so store-bought eggs rarely have them since the eggs are old.

    You will sometimes get what I call a meat egg too.

    It will have a little chunk of brown something in it, looks like tissue.

    I personally don't eat them, I give them to my dog.

    Store eggs are candled and they grade these out.

    The blood spot is from when a blood vessel breaks along the way of the egg making. I just lick them out with a spoon and go about things.
    You see it alot in new layers.
