Strange lump in eggs - Page 2

post #11 of 14

It looks like it could be a lash egg which is a product of internal laying, but I haven't seen one inside a shell before. Kind of strange.  Here is a link or two about lash eggs:

My hen started laying again about 6 weeks ago after stopping for her molt, but then layed this egg, and after that a tiny witch egg (No yolk), then stopped laying again. Granted, we did get that big snow storm during that time so maybe she was just disrupted by that. 

She is acting fine, but I want to make sure this is fairly normal and nothing to worry about. 

Thanks!


So did anyone ever figure out what these were?  I cracked open an egg from a new layer this morning and found something similar, not in the yolk, but in the clear part of the egg.  It was a small meaty white thing with a bit of blood attached to it.
