    I am wanting to know if anyone can tell me what came inside of a egg I collected yesterday. I cracked it open and two yokes came out and a dark clump about the size of a marble came out also. I cut the ball open and it had the consistency of a gizzard I've asked a number of friends but no one had seen anything like it.

    That is very strange I've heard of a double yolker but a small gizzard? Is your chicken allright? and also did the gizzerd seem like it was part of the chickens stomach? I hope not!

    No, the "thing" was in the egg but not a part of the yolk or sack. I didn't quite know how best to describe it other than being the consistency of gizzard meat. The hen is in great health. Runs around like nothing is bothering her at all. All the "girls" eat the same feed ,but what they pickup on the property is anybody's guess. I've been raising chickens for 45yrs and have never seen this. A mystery to me.

    I think he will be fine but I don't know if his wattle will grow back! But as long as he isn't bleading too much and he doesn't get any infectin he'll be alright I think!
