Recurrent blood spots

Recommended Posts

One of my chickens has been laying eggs with blood spots off and on for over a month. At first I thought it was just a one time thing and no big deal, just a burst vessel near the ovum or something, but it keeps happening. This morning, I cracked open an egg that had two large blood spots in it. Is this typical or a cause for concern? Most of the information that I can find online says that it's not a problem, but one site said that it could be a sign that a hen is past her prime. I don't know how old she is since she was a second-hand hen! I swear she's grown since I've had her. I don't know if that means she wasn't full grown yet or if it's just because she's getting better food with me! :)
