Default Egg Diseases? Red, spotted, etc.

I cracked open an egg last night & to my surprise the white was not white, it was RED! The yolk was still yellow.
I through the whole bowl out!
And once several years ago I cracked an egg & the yolk had red spots all over it.
Just wondering if anyone knows anything about this?
Are they safe to eat? Make you sick?

Know of any other types of wierd eggs that we should look out for?

Well, at least I don't complain when I get a twin yolk!!

Yes, they're safe. Just a broken blood vessel from when the egg was forming. Also,
the color of the yolk varies according to what the hen's been eating. And red spots mean you have a very fresh egg!

Or if it was a fertilized egg. Taken before it formed into an embryo. Or it means it is very fresh.

Years ago, we used to buy eggs from this little mom and pop store when we vacationed in WI. ALL had double yolks. Never figured that one out.

We had several chickens when we lived in CA and the above posters are right. It's safe to eat these eggs and they taste the same. Personally, I prefer when the yolks are deep orange...means the hens have eaten good foods and they taste better! Also, as another poster mentioned fertilized eggs often have bits of blood. I don't even care for eggs from the store anymore. They don't even taste like real eggs to me...not after eating fresh eggs for the last 20 years!
