Ruling on Eating Eggs with Blood Spot in it

Sometimes among crude eggs there are eggs with a certain drop of blood or a clot of red colour. Is it possible to use such eggs in food?

In principle, it is permissible to consume such eggs as the blood spots do not render the egg to be unlawful due to it not being flowing blood. (Adapted from Bada’lus Sana’i)

Nevertheless, it will be best to discard the egg and use an alternate one or remove the spots of blood.

If the yolk has become blood completely, such eggs will not be permissible.
