    I have a Buff Orpington that I thought was going broody for the better part of a week. Last week she stubbed her middle right toe & has been limping around and holding it up.[​IMG]

    She did that before she started acting broody. She's about 7 months old & does not have the same weight as the other 2 BOs. Sometimes, usually daily, I will pull her out for an inspection & hand feed her some live mealworms and other food if she will eat it. She seems to have a below average appetite, though I have only seen her drink a few times, but I can't watch her around the clock. Whe all of the lock was getting ready to go into the coop, I noticed she was trying to go poop several times & nothing seened to happen. Then it finally did, however this odd thing was on the ground. It's a bulb looking thing with a twisted cord attached. I rinsed it off & took these pix. The brown specs are dirt that didn't wash off. Any body have any idea if it's internal parts that dislodged from her?

    It looks like one of those occasionally odd eggs with an attached membrane. Probably just a mix up in her reproductive system. If it happens again, then you might worry about her being an internal layer, which can be fairly common.

    If you go to the top of this page to the search box and type in weird egg? weird clump equals lash egg," you will see other examples similar or just like it. If you break open the egg, it will probably have a yolk inside.
