One of my Delawares, Maxie, was going downhill for a week. She was in full molt, developed crop stasis, but there was a very hard mass in her abdomen that we had never felt, even in our internal layers. We euthanized her this morning since it was obvious there was no hope and were compelled to see what the heck was in that hard mass, though we were sure it was one of her huge round eggs that had gotten into her abdomen. We were correct, but only to a degree. There were four eggs, one huge with another egg inside of it, plus two others crammed around it in a deflated state, all outside of the oviduct, I think. Here are the photos, for your education.... You've been warned of the graphic nature, so don't look if you can't take it, but this is a must see for folks, IMO.
