    I have several chickens that have been laying with no issues. All eggs look wonderful... Just got a new pullet egg that looks like this! What is going on??? We have no roosters![​IMG]

    Meat spots. They are just bits of tissue that broke off the oviduct when the yolk was released. Some hens frequently lay eggs like this, other times, it's just stress-related. Completely normal, and the eggs are fine to eat/use.
