Eww!!! A chicken in my egg!! - Page 2  

post #16 of 129
Is it ok to use an egg with a bit of blood?
Sometimes I get the odd black spot or something, I always pick it out. All my food is picture perfect otherwise it turns my guts!

It's perfectly fine. Blood spots are not embryos.

Ummm....yuk. I have come accross blood spots before but I have never heard of anything like tha . I guess someone wasn't paying too much attention when the eggs were going through those machines.

A chick embryo in an egg is an old egg. I would change my egg source asap. Shell color has to do with the breed of chicken not with blood spots. White feathers equals white eggs; brown/red feathers equals brown eggs. You can tell if an egg is fresh by looking at it after it is cracked. The yolk will set up strong and the white will be equally thick and cohesive. There will be a bit of runny white but not much. The blood spot is basicly a nothing, although it does indicate that egg is very fresh because the spot will disappear with age. If a blood spot grosses you out, just flick it out with a knife tip. Also if you want to hard cook and peel an egg make sure that it is at least a week old.

seriously good point!
This all reminds me of my Dad's former co-worker, who was from the Phillipines(sp?) He used to bring in all these amazing native dishes into work for my dad to try....the only one my dad couldn't bring himself to eat was some dish that contained duck embryos...bleh tapedshut.gif barf!

I'm glad to see that I didn't over react to what I saw!! I stopped by Costco today and told them about this and they were quite upset about it. They assured me that they will be contacting the egg company ASAP. In hindsight I should have kept the "egg" for evidence but I was seriously so grossed out that I told my husband to get rid of it immediately!!

Incidentally, fertilised eggs (fresh ones that is - not ones where the embryo has developed) are nutritionally superior to unfertilised eggs. Apparently.

But it does sound like the chicken farm supplying your Costco has had some clandestine nocturnal visits from a renegade rooster...

Good to know about the red spot and age! I am bringing deviled eggs to Thanksgiving at my husband' aunts house. I can just imagine! Eww! I think I'll sent DH out first thing in the morning to get some to start aging!
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

SO sorry this happened!! I think I would have been sick. icon_sad.gif

I don't really get the repulsion to fresh farm eggs though....where do you think eggs come from? LOL. Eggs technically do not need to be refrigerated. A friend of mine just gave me a dozen fresh eggs right out of her hen house and they were divine!

Each to their own though right?

I used to eat eggs straight from the henhouse years ago. I can tell you this...I think those eggs were much tastier then the ones you buy in the store. But they don't work worth a hoot for deviled eggs...fresh eggs never do. They are a lot harder to get the shells off of.

Are eggs sold refrigerated in the US? Here in Australia they're always sold unrefrigerated...I do stick them in the fridge when I get them home though.
