What ARE these??

I found these things close together under the roost this morning along with the expected poop. They came from one of my 4 RIRs, but I don't know which one frequents the end spot where these were found. The chicks were born last spring and are not molting, though only 3 of them have continued laying daily.

Can this be from the one who is not laying? Can it be a yolk that made its way through without all the other additions? It is softly rubbery with a more mushy interior. I hope the pictures show them well. One of my hens (again, don't know which one) used to lay double yolkers every once in a while (I think had 5 of them over the summer months) - so this double deposit reminds me of that, too.

Anyone seen anything like this and have figured them out?

ok though in the reading I've done about lash eggs, they all seem to come out larger and more egg shaped.
As I don't know which hen laid these, do you think it is ok to give antibiotics to all 4?
