No, it's just a little blood, no need to waste the egg. Despite the common myth, blood in the egg does not mean that the egg was fertilized, it is just something that forms in some eggs, sometimes they get a little blood clot. I have had eggs from chickens that had no contact with roosters, no way they could be fertilized, with a little blood in them. Sometimes when an egg is being formed, a capillary bursts inside the hen and a little blood gets inside the forming egg, no big deal.

Eh, I'm afraid of it happening to me again. The first time it took me a long time to break eggs again.

Quoting teri4lance:

I may have to do that. Although I'm 39 and this is my first one. What are the chances of it happenung again?




Quoting Purple_Pixie:

Never had a bloody egg, I have had a somewhat formed chick, and another one where the egg was fertilized and cell seperation was just starting. I don't break eggs open into my pan or bowl that has everything else in it. I now break each one seperatly into a small dish.

It happens a lot more often with farm fresh eggs. I had never seen one before we started raising chickens and stopped buying eggs at the store. We ended up with maybe a dozen or so bloody eggs last summer...we were getting probably 30 eggs a day though. I just throw them out or feed them to our dogs

I just scoop out the spot. Only once have I broken the egg open and the entire white part was blood tinged, so I had to scoop the whole thing out. It wasn't mixed into whatever I was cooking yet, though, so I got enough of it that it didn't bother me and kept cooking.
