    I found this in the nest today when I collected eggs - it is a little smaller than a golf ball. I initially thought it was a shelled yoke but it wasn't.

    I have five hens - 3 are two years old and the other 2 are 1 years old. I don't have a rooster.

    Looks like a lash egg, but could be a shed ovary or part of the intestinal track. Don't worry, it happens sometimes. Just keep an eye out for more. :)
