    Good morning!

    Any of you ever find this in your eggs when you crack them open? My Welsummer is the only chicken who will occasionally have this in her eggs. [​IMG]

    Meat or blood spot...caused by a broken blood vessel when an ova is released.
    Some birds have them more often.
    Can pick it out or mix it in....won't hurt you, tho can be unappealing in a sunny side up.
