    I went out to get eggs this morning,and I have two hens that give me white eggs. When I grabed the one white one it had blood on it. Not just a little but it was real red. The bottom toward the nest was also soft. Do I have one dying?????

    Well sometimes blood happens on the eggs. Was it a particularly large egg? Sometimes soft shell or partial soft shells happen.

    Did you check everyone's behind to see if you can tell which gal to watch?

    No it was normal. And it was just on bottom of egg that was soft. I did just start giving them cracked corn the other day. Will see what happens today Thanks
