    I went to collect eggs and I found 4 eggs in one box. in that same nesting box I found a tan colored blob with little blobs all around it. I thought nothing of it the first time. But when I discovered it again I was concerned. I broke open the blob/poop and I found a squishy paste. I don't know if the chicken is pooping it out with its egg or if it is attempting to lay an egg but lays this blob/poop instead. Anyone know what this is and how to prevent or stop it?
