    Today I went in the coop to collect eggs.well there wasn't any eggs but, there was something. It looked like a plucked chicken wing at first. But when I looked at it close it looked like a intestaint! I picked it up with a stick and took it out of the cage.(I did not touch it!) it was flesh looking and it leaked liquid. Really GROSS! I thought maybe it was a SUPER deformed egg, but I don't know for sure. Can some one help me! I don't want my chickens to die, or be sick!!

    Update: my chicken started acting sick, she wouldn't eat she hardly ate. I found her dead in the coop today. :( I think it was a ovary or something that should came out.
