That's very strange... certainly not like any shellless egg I've seen. Does she do it in her nest or is it just a poo?

It's a poo then. I've never seen anything like it... there doesn't seem to be anything on it on the internet either. Did it just happen once? Is she fine otherwise?

It looks like something she ate that either didn't digest or was partially digested. If it is a one time occurrence, I wouldn't worry about it. Parole that hen!

I've had shell less eggs and they look just like eggs without strong shells, but membranes instead. This picture doesn't resemble that at all.
