I recently discovered a home near me that sells eggs from their backyard chickens. I bought a dozen, broke two yesterday for fried egg sandwiches, and both eggs had blood spots. Okay, I'm used to seeing that occasionally, and it was just the luck of the draw that I got two of those eggs in my dozen. I fished the offending spots out and ate my sandwich without giving it another thought. Earlier this morning, I cracked open two more eggs for scrambled eggs . . . blood spots. By now I'm suspicious and decide to candle the rest of the eggs, and they all have blood spots (to ward off the suggestion before it pops up in any replies, no, there is no chance these are developing embryos). My first thought is these chickens have a worm infestation of some sort, and naturally I will go back today to inform the owner of my concerns. My question is, should I be concerned about eating these eggs or giving them to my animals? I know worms rarely pop up in the egg itself, and I would assume a thorough cooking would kill anything that did. The only evidence of a problem is there are too many blood spots to be a coincidence, and that is not sufficiently unsettling enough for me to think tossing out and wasting the eggs is justified. But maybe I'm wrong and there is a risk I'm overlooking. Anyone know, other than the grossness factor, any reason I should not continue eating the rest of my dozen?
