    Hi everyone,

    This morning I saw something in my coop, just outside the nesting box that I cannot identify. It look like two small objects joined by a tube. Can anyone identify this? Is it possibly an ovary from one of my chickens? Should I be worried? All my chickens seem happy and Healthy. The only issue we are having is one of my hens hasn't laid an egg since October, but it may be that it is winter. (Although winter in California isn't much)

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Looks like two parts of soft-shelled eggs. My bet is that the one who is not laying passed it as her system is getting ready to lay again.

    Not an internal organ, just a very weird egg. [​IMG]
