    My girlie had been very sick for months now. I just thought she was egg bound. Upon a lot of searching I finally found that she had lagh eggs inside her. There puss balls. I helped her get one out yesterday but she passed this a.m. So I opened her to see just what I was dealing with and as you can see in the picture I posted she had that huge puss ball that must of kept growing inside her for months now.I strated noticing her waddle getting pale and she wasn't giving me eggs for a long time. I'm sure going to miss her. But I hope this helps someone out there that might be having the same kind of problems with there pullets. RIP Girlie.

    I'm sorry for your loss.

    Thank you for sharing the photos and your story, I'm sure it will be helpful to others.
    @EggSighted4Life look up Salpingitis or "lash egg", there are quite a few articles here on BYC and the internet.

    Did you find pieces of shell when you opened her up? Maybe soft shells?

    I think this is called egg binding..
