I have a 2 year old Orpington, and this past week almost daily, she has been laying strange things. I assume they are parts of shellless eggs, but I'm not sure. Yesterday, I noticed her being still for quite awhile and then took a picture of what she laid. I have oyster shell available at all times. Should I be worried or is this normal? Thank you!

No, she is 2 years old. She was a good layer before this. I'm baffled!
