    Hi guys! So we are new chicken owners. Not sure of our breeds. We have 6 hens and a rooster. The girls are 5 months old and our boy is 18 days younger. Love them to pieces!

    About a month ago we noticed strange diarrhea like poop. Since then we have been trying to figure out which one it is coming from. Well, today we figured it out. One of the girls. She is isolating herself and is really acting like she doesn't feel well. She actually laid her head in my hand and fell asleep. Then liquid came from her. She relaxed again and again, liquid came from her. This time she seemed to be in distress. I looked and realized it was egg white came out of her. No yolk, no shell. Then a while later, a tubular, open ended, soft shell came out of her. Her comb and wattle look fine although they are not as warm as the others. Any ideas on what could be going on? Below is a picture of her shell.
