I went out last night to put my hens away and grab the eggs. I found a broken egg in one of the boxes and no sign of a shell. And laying on the ledge in front of the box was what really looks to me like a uterus!!! I am not sure though. It looks like one of the chickens picked at it a few times, but otherwise was intact, just shriveled up and hard. I thought it was frozen but I brought it in the house overnight and this morning it is still hard. Anyway, I looked at all the hens' rears to see if anybody was bleeding or anything, but I didn't see any problems. I attached a pic of the object. It's kinda messy from the hay, and I don't have the stomach to clean it off or even touch it!!! Does anybody know what this is and why it happened? And how to figure out which hen it came from? All my girls are out and about this morning looking fine, so I am totally clueless which one this happened to. Thanks for your input!
