Yes, just a few weeks ago. I had three eggs with blood spots.

Bad eggs?

Over a half century ago, "summer people" would come up to the lake for the summer. Dad would be there on weekends. Most families had just one car and Dad had the car at work. My future brother-in-law did deliveries from the general store. The store had one truck for groceries, lumber, fuel, firewood and dynamite. I said it was over a half century ago, but I digress.

The one ton International didn't seem to have springs. It felt like it had iron bars instead and camp roads are rough with stumps and rocks to go over. Ray arrived at a camp with the International and a lady met him on the porch with her arms crossed.

"Young man; The last two times you brought groceries some of the eggs were broken. They were on the bottom of the bag!. Ray looked at the International truck. He said, "Leddy; We put them eggs on the bottom so's when they break they won't run down over the rest of your groceries."

The stuff we are reminded of on City-Data.com.

Growing up, we always had chickens and fresh, fertilized eggs. Yes, we had eggs with blood spots. I don't remember ever seeing an actual chickie fetus, but blood spots are a little disturbing.

Never had the misfortune to break open a bad egg, though. Yuck.

That's not an egg that's gone bad. It's fine. The following link explains what blood spots are caused by.

gosh, us city folk!

eggs are possibly my favorite food, i love them cooked most any and every way. even fried until rubbery, brown and crispy, i'll eat them, sometimes i cook them this way on purpose.

a few years ago i bought a dozen eggs from a farmer's market....nearly every egg had a blood spot in it. it turned me off so bad i've never bought eggs from a farmer's market again. i had to really fight against it turning me off eggs for good.

good to know there's nothing wrong with them....maybe i'll give the farmer's market eggs another go sometime.

When I was younger and had free-range chickens, sometimes we'd miscalculate and end up cracking open either rotten eggs, or fertilised ones that had little chicken fetuses in them. That was always distressing.
Agree on supermarket eggs. They are tasteless.

We had chickens when I was a kid, but no rooster. So no fetuses (feti?). We did have to supplement calcium when we started getting eggs with leathery shells.

Never had a bad egg.

Out of curiosity, 3 ways to tell if an egg is bad:

3 Ways to Tell if an Egg is Bad - wikiHow

And of course the tried and true method: the egg smells rotten and/or is unnaturally colored.

I'm sure your question is meant to be funny, because you must know that the private label at Walgreens is called "Nice". But no, I've never bought bad eggs.
