    This is a first for me (as I've only had my flock for 1 year, collecting eggs for 4 months). Is this really what I think it is? Was this a growing chick? My Roo was killed last week- I don't know when this egg was collected but we literally gather eggs every 1-2 days. What the heck is this? My kids freaked out! Lol.

    It looks like a very large blood spot. A chick looks more fetus-y and you would see veins. http://www.usa-gardening.com/hatching-chicken-eggs/chicken-embryo-development.html
