I found this thing in my coop tonight. I don't know what it is. Could be poo.. could be egg thing (??) I don't know. But I'm super nervous. Never ever seen nothing like it.. it had a weird smell when I cut it open. And was kind of tough like cutting into Play-Doh with a butter knife but a little tougher. The outside of it is like a rusty color like powdery type substance. I don't think it's blood but could be. Looks like someone rolled a small glob of cookie dough in cinnamon.. 😵‍💫🤨

ETA-- I did find a soft shell egg that was busted as well. Can't pinpoint which one it was for sure. They all lay in the same place (their choice. Plenty of other nesting boxes/areas) so it's hard to tell who it is.. the only one who seems off is my legbar.. she lays green/olive eggs and either hasn't been laying or found a really good hiding spot. This soft shell was a brown egg.

So I checked again when I opened the coop. There was a little clump thing that is laying where the soft shell was dropped. And I took better pics of the blob thing again.

I don't. Those are all that I took. I can try and get better ones maybe.. right after I took the last pic my cat came up and knocked it down off my porch banister. So let me go and find it and I'll get more pics.

And thank you! I'm just nervous and completely baffled! It's just so odd for me.
