    my welsummers occasionally have these (i'm assuming) blood clots in the whites of the eggs. My other chickens do not have this issue and it's not every welsummer egg. Does this happen to other individuals also?

    Blood spots and meat spots happen. Nothing to worry about.

    Yep, just a little glitch in the production line.

    My Wellsummer hen is also the only hen that has this issue. Almost every egg she lays has the same spots in the white. I just remove them when cooking.
