    That first pic looks like some kind of rodent fetus.....I may be crazy but it looks like a little foot is visible.
    She was seperated from others but where???

    Ok.....I'm new, but to me it looks like a chick fetus with the yolk attached? I have read on here about hens laying eggs without the shell? Is it possible that she had a shellless egg and didn't pass it and it sortof cooked inside her? Just a thought!

    Kinda looked like a fetus to me too. Do you have a vet or ag office you could take it to maybe they would know in the mean time I would give antibotics to make sure she doesnt get an infection from this.

    I really have no idea what a hen's ovary looks like, but how is she doing?

    Quote:I would agree- I think it looks like she laid a (very defunct) chick. Sometimes people have weird growths inside of them (can't remember what they're called). Glad she passed it and hope she's okay.
