    I couldn't take a pic because it's raining and I was kinda grossed out. This egg had a shell, but it was the color of a latex glove, the consistency of a latex glove, and it was all rumpled up next to where the egg's innards were. The innards gross. There was a clear part, there was some green that looked like a beak (it wasn't, though I have no clue what it was) and some latex glove colored goop. Any clues? Ideas?

    I checked my hens, they all seem fine, though they are all in the coop cause it's raining.

    Thank you-I'd never have guessed to search for rubbery egg, but I did get my answer! Thank you again.

    That my hen just laid a freaky egg but she isn't from the planet Chickton and she isn't going to sneak into the house at night and eat the dog's faces off or anything.

    Now aren't you sorry you asked [​IMG]
