Can I add a question here, I read this thread to help me but I am wondering still. I have two cuckoo marans, and I cracked three of their eggs the other morning, each seeming a little worse than the one before. I have no idea whose, or how old each of them were, we just have crates that we fill and rotate. Sometimes the blood is bigger than the others, and once there was this brown "crumb" I love the color of their eggs, but sadly they seem a little less appetizing to me now. Any suggetions? or solutions?
