    One of my chickens dropped this, looks to be blood mixed with egg white and shell membrane. No chickens are acting sick. I do have one lame chicken that never laid due to stress from a swollen crop....maybe internally laying? Thoughts?[​IMG]

    You may be right about a reproductive problem, but how old are your chickens? Keep looking for any more blood. You can always get a fecal test done in case of coccidiosis.
