    Does anyone have idea what this is that I found in a nest box today? It looks like a fart egg but rubbery. I cut it open. Here are some pics. Sorry The 1st pic is fuzzy. [​IMG]

    Your hen laid a bouncy ball. [​IMG]

    That's a new one, haven't seen that kind of "egg" before. Hopefully someone else has an idea.

    I don't know what that is, don't eat it though. LOL, I have seen similar pics on here though someone will hopefully come along with a solid answer for you.

    I think I have heard this referred to as a Lash Egg. Type that in the search and you can read about it more.

    It's an egg laying mistake, for sure -- that is, it's an egg, sort of.
