    Anyone,

    Take a look at these pictures I have posted. They are pictures of chicken poop that I cleaned
    out of the chicken coop the other morning. Odd looking to me but maybe one of you out there
    in chicken world will recognize this image. I am really really hoping you won't say what I suspect.[​IMG]

    That looks like a lash egg, which is tissue that has been laid by an internal layer. If you do a search at the top of the page for "lash egg" you will find many threads with pictures about them.
