    I saw the strangest thing in my egg! It was kind of like cooked chicken meat almost! I'll try to post a pic but I can't just yet!

    Looks like either shed intestinal/reproductive tract lining(most likely) or a fat deposit (not sure possible unless hen is old). As long as it does not continue to happen, the hen should be fine. [​IMG]
