    One of my girls has been looking pretty sick lately (pale and lethargic). I thought maybe she could be egg-bound, so I soaked her in warm water and have kept her inside in a small pen. She's gotten her color back and seems to be acting normal, but today I saw some very, VERY creepy eggs, or what I think are eggs. They almost look like organs...soft, but firm. She has no other symptoms and seems to be fine. I'm just very worried about these eggs. This was the first time she's laid eggs like this. She is almost a year and has been a good layer. She is a RIR. I attached pics for anyone who can help (there is pine bedding on them...sorry). Thanks!

    They look like lash eggs. It's a sign of egg yolk peritonitis. (Internal laying) Unfortunately, there isn't anything you can do for her. How old is she?
