    What else can be found in eggs in addition to blood veins and meat spots? And, what are meat spots?

    Quote:that would be Chalazae, vitelline membrane, structural fibers, and layers of albumin and parts of the oviduct (meat spot) if they are fertilized that would be sperm and can even have parts of all that from a previous egg that had gone threw the oviduct but didnt have a shell put on it and sometimes you get 2 yolks

    Quote:Oh yes.. it is quite common, you eat them all the time and don't know it. The eggs at commerical plants that have them in it, are used for processed products.. Just about anything that is pre-packaged that contains eggs are these types of eggs. Other eggs that are pulled are odd shaped, over sized, discolored. That is perfectly natural.

    If you plan on selling your eggs and if anyone makes notice of this, you can tell them now!!! YEAH!
