    Found some poop that was the shape and size of a normal poop but seemed to be mixed in with yolk. One of the hens has been laying soft or shell-less eggs for about a week, but not sure which hen passed the poop.

    Would be greateful for any ideas?

    Sorry not been on line for a while. There were no signs of distress, a little bit 'slow' and lethargic. The poop only happened once, it's been ok since, she didn't lay for a few days but she's back to normal now. The hens have mainly layers pellets, there's oyster shell for them in a pot permanently.

    Although she's ok now I'd still be interested to know what the poop with 'yolky' stuff in it meant.
