Check this out:

One of our chickens laid this yesterday. I found it in a nesting box in the middle of a broken egg shell. Not sure whether this was laid separately after the first egg had broken and this is an "egg" unto itself, or if this is what was inside the first egg. I think it was the former, because there was yolk and albumen evident in the hay beneath the crushed egg. The one pictured had a rubbery texture with a tacky feel to the outside. I cut it open to see what was inside and found a small squirt of colorless liquid (albumen?), but mostly just more of the rubbery material. What is it?!
