I have been visiting the site for months and gleening all kinds of wonderful information. Thank you! I saw something in my coop today that was a little unsettling and prompted me to join. I have 6 girls, just turned a year old. I have two Buffs and have noticed that one has not layed the last few days. Seemed OK otherwise. Today when I went into the coop to spot clean, I found what looked very much like a small popped balloon with a large wet area around it. Upon closer inspection, I think it was the membrane of an egg that didn't form and when she expelled it, it popped.
What does this mean? Any and all chicken wisdom much appreciated!
