    There is no way possible for worm eggs to get into chicken eggs they are called meat spots or blood spots you have a meat spot which is just a piece of the reproductive tract in the egg it is perfectly fine to eat the reason you haven't ever seen this before is because the eggs from a chicken factory are candled to remove any eggs with impurities it is very common in new layers.
