Red yolk
« on: August 28, 2017, 16:13 »
I found this in the coop yesterday. It felt firm, so I tried to cut it in half, but it turned out to be an egg yolk. Anybody seen one before? Any significance?

The hen that I assume laid it (as it was in her usual nest box) is a speckledy who is just over a year old, and is a good layer of normal eggs.

I've had one that laid an egg with a blood covered yolk like that in it, but not seen just a yolk on its own.   Mine was fine and has laid normal eggs ever since. 

If they are all eating, drinking and busy making a row, I would say it was just a malfunction in the egg making process somewhere and hopefully a one off.
