    My hen has been acting off for the last 4 days. She is 6 months and has never layed a normal egg just soft/no shell every other day. She has oyster shell and is on a crushed calcium supplement. I gave her a Epsom salt bath yesterday and it did nothing. I gave her another one and THIS CAME OUT! Is this a lash egg? What do i do now??

    Oh my, I haven't see something like this yet.
    I do not think it is a lash egg though.
    Can you cut it in half and get another photo?

    I tried to cut it, and it was like a think membrane of a soft shell egg. Not much inside.
