    I am finding an object, like the one pictured, in the nest boxes. Found 3 so far about every few days. Hens appear healthy. They live the good life, pastured on a fenced half acre with an air conditioned coop![​IMG]

    Looks kindof like a yolk that missed the egg white and the egg shell. Maybe give her more calcium?

    Don't think it is a yolk as it is solid with some fatty and meaty areas. Chickens are not interested in it, nor does it have an odor.
