    I found this in the coop by the nest box. Is this an shell less egg? It is huge I put it next to a plastic Easter egg for comparison. It feels like there is something a little crunchy in it like an thin walled egg!! Gross. It isn't the chicken's uterus is it?

    I don't know, but would love to know....we had that once with one our chickens - she hasn't laid since, so I'm thinking it's something along those lines.

    Kinda looks like a shellless egg. Time for an eggtopsy.

    Cut it open and post pic.

    Okay you made me do it LOL!! It does have a shell inside the membrane thing but it is really thin. I opened the actual shell and it looked like all yolk. [​IMG]

    ETA: Oops I guess you wanted to see the pic.
