    Hello, my crested duck has been laying an egg a day for about 2 months now and the other day one had some blood in it. Not a "streak", about a pea size drop of blood. Is something wrong? Diet? She eats layer crumbles, oyster shells and grit. Veggies 2x a week. The eggs laid after were fine. Thanks!!
