What is that thing in my egg?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Found this in my 3 minutes egg this morning.  Any ideas/suggestions as to what it might be?

 

FYI, I have layers of different ages and some have just started.  This was a regular sized egg, so probably  not laid by a newbie. My hens are pastured and receive daily servings of fruit and/or vegetables.

 

The first pic shows the inside.

 

Thank you.

That is something from the oviduct or ovary, a piece of tissue. I don't think I would be eating eggs for a while after finding that.

Looks like a 'lash egg'...which usually indicates an infection in the reproductive system.

Don't think I've ever heard of one being inside a 'normal' egg.....but it certainly is possible.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
