    I wished I had taken a picture, but I'll discribe it and you tell me if you have seen anything like it.
    I looked down on the floor off the coop near there food dish and found what looked like an egg covered in poop. When I picked it up and tried to peal away the poo i realized it was a large egg sized poop.
    I could see peices of cracked corn and bird seed that I give for treats.
    It it possible that all that stuff was stuck inside her vent and after a while she just pushed it out?

    i've seen some monsterously large poops from my chickens, especially the ones that are older and have been broody. Sometimes i'm surprised at what comes out of their behinds.
