    My chicken laid an egg that looks like it has a sack around it. not sure which chicken it was. They all seem to be acting ok. Any ideas as to what is happening and if this will hurt her.

    It looks like an egg could've cracked when it was in the womb. Or maybe she's malnutrientioned? Sometimes that can happen. But you might need to take her to the vet just in case.
    I hope I helped you.
    Sincerely,
    Jackie
