    What does it feel like...hard, soft?
    Might be a good idea to cut it in half and take another pic.
    That's a pretty watery poop......from same bird?
    How old is bird?
    What exactly are you feeding?

    So I just cut open the soft egg and the pink thing. Seems the pink thing was a crumpled egg shell with a cooked egg inside I read somewhere it was called puss o'lith... Not sure though...here the pics

    It felt firm but not hard...looked like it was multiple egg shells folded together
