One of our older hens lays a huge egg every 3 days (no eggs on other days) but they all look like this when cracked. Why?? What are the extra bits? We have no cockerel, so can’t be an embryo. Thanks in advance.
Did you cut that chunk open?
Would be good to do and take a pic of fr confirmation.
Looks like a 'lash egg', which is a piece of hardened pus from an infection.
How old is bird..and what breed?
