    This morning I found an egg that had been layed in the morning. It's shell had a blood/fluid coating on it.[​IMG] It looked more like rust. It had dried to the eggshell. I have no idea which of my four Khakis layed this. What could be going on? Is this normal? I wouldn't think so. Anyone have any ideas? [​IMG]

    Thanks so much.

    Quote:It's not unusual to see blood on the egg shell, now if it was alot and bright red then that would be worrisome, but I would just keep an eye plealed and maybe take a quick look at each girls bum to make sure theres no prolaspe. Thats where a little of the inside can come out when laying an egg. you would know it if you saw it.
