While cleaning my nest box today, I discovered a strange soft “thing” (for lack of a better term) in the (sand) nest box. After rinsing off the sand, it feels like soft tissue, and I’m thinking it possibly could be an egg shell membrane that my chicken passed. I noticed there was a lot of clear liquid in the area of the nest box where this item was found. The photos show a Sharpie pen nearby for scale. Anyone here on BYC seen anything like this before? I’ve saved it in a baggie; not sure if I should take to my Vet. My RIR (Aubrey) has had some illness and egg production issues this past year. She’s laying again, but more prone to soft shell or broken eggs. The intact eggs that she does lay are always larger than normal, and slightly mis-shapen at the top end. Thank you for any feedback.
