    It looks alot like the blood rings I see when incubating....did she sit on them? I, personally, wouldn't eat that!

    I know this is a couple months old but this looks simular to some of my hard boiled eggs. Have you got an answer. One picture I came across said salmonella. Any info would help. Thanks
