Weird Item in nest (Hens not laying) - Help Please

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Our hens have not being laying for several months, the issue may have started after some bad food. Since when almost no eggs. Two of the 4 birds have molted and the daylight is now very short.

 

I have now found a second of these weird egg like things, in the nest (See below).

 

They are rubbery and are like onion layers.

 

I have seen some similar for when birds have infection but they are not uniform like these.

 

Appreciate any feed back.

 

I have wormed the birds and they are on a good protein laying pellets and scratch feed every day.

 

 

 

 

 

Regards,

 

Phantom

Yes, lash egg......usually mean infection, prognosis not often good.

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!!!
