    I hav never seen anything like this. My last baby hatched out of the egg, leaving behind these 2 clear ball things. They feel "gel" filled. the chick appears to be healthy, no un absorbed yolk, etc. I have never seen anything like it before! What are these?

    My BIL and DH just butchered some older hens of ours to use for the stew pot and two of them were filled with a whole mass of those exact same clear balls! I don't know what they are and I googled lots of different words trying to find an answer and could come up with none, so hopefully you will get your answer and I can use it as well!
