What is this?

post #1 of 5

I was cleaning out my coop this morning and saw this
.

It is not a eggless egg nor is it a normal chicken dropping.

Did you collect it?  Was it extremely squishy or somewhat firm to the touch?  If you still have it, cut it open.  First blush says it may be a lash egg - but that would go back to the texture, contents, etc on examination/disection.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Hard to say...doesn't really look like lash but....just keep an eye on things.

How big is it?

Could be a fluke or the beginning of the end.

Check vents and abdomens.

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!!!
