    Hi,

    One of my chickens laid the strangest egg today. It was a softshell egg, but I could see something inside of it. I broke it and a lot of was seemed like water ran out and a yoke the size of a dime and then a large, white thing came out. It was about 2" x 1" x 1" in size. When I looked at it closer it looked like it had chicken skin on it. I eventually broke it in half and it looked just like a cooked piece of white chicken meat. I have had chickens a long time, but have never seen anything like this. Has anyone else experienced this or know what it is?

    Here is what it looked like:

    Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "meat spot".

    Never heard of such a thing either.

    Dang, that's a new one for me. I'm curious to hear what others say. I've had soft ones, but.....

    This is amazing. It could be the future, chickens that LAY chicken nuggets.

    I wouldve preserved it somehow and got it to somekind of animal biology lab.

    I'm pretty new to this so I have no idea as to WHAT that morsel is. But I applaud your judicious use of rubber gloves![​IMG]

    Well, that was an interesting thread on weird henopause. Never heard of this sloughing of the reproductive tract but each critter ages differently.
    Thanks for the information on the weird flesh thingy called a Lash.
