Good afternoon all!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I have a mystery on my hands. I will use some pictures to help you along. One of our pullets, Tilly (daughter named her) has come of age. Below is a pic of her I posted awhile back when she was 20 weeks old:
Her comb and wattles are even larger this morning. They turned 24 weeks old on Sunday. Tilly started squatting for me the day after Thanksgiving. This morning, she did not come out of the coop and she was pecking around in the corner which now has a cleared off area, which was not there yesterday. When I went to clean the poop out, which I do every morning before work, I found this:
It was not in the corner where she was pecking around. In person, it looked like albumen, but in the pic, it looks like there is yolk too. I just noticed that Tilly has some material below her vent. So, what do you think? Did she lay an egg and eat it? Did she just pass the liquid parts? It was below the roost, hence the other goodies in the pic. I found no egg shell at all. I worked late yesterday and they are already in the roost when I got home and my son closed them up. Any insight from the more experienced would be very welcome.
