    Does anyone know what this is? It came out of a chicken who has not laid an egg since March 5th and she is 4 years old. She is acting a bit slower and possibly in the beginning of vent gleet, which I am treating her for. It looks like a translucent membrane to me, it stretched when I picked it up, does not have anything in it but clear liguid and does not seem to be a worm. No movement, nor is there a head and so on.

    It kind of seems like the membrane inside an eggshell, but...MORE of it. I don't KNOW, but that's my best guess

    G’Day from down under our lovelies [​IMG] Welcome!

    I am also swaying towards possibly a membrane or two joined together. Hopefully the folks on the ER Forum will know for sure.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    [​IMG] EEk, I wonder if that is shedding of her intestinal lining ?????? Maybe you could post your photo at "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread to see what they come up with.
