Odd "egg" laid-what is it?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Ok, I hesitate to call this an egg. I saw this in the coop, not in the nesting boxes, and I usually get the same number of eggs daily, and I am one short today, so this must be her "egg". I have one hen who often has problems, lots of soft shells or eggs with no shell at all. She has never laid one of these that I am aware of, just wondered if anybody has seen something like this before? I couldn't resist cutting it open to see what was inside. The texture was almost meat-like when I cut it.

That is a lash egg. Your hen has an infection in her oviduct. Look up lash egg in the search engine.
