    I found this in one of my nesting boxes this afternoon, no idea what it is. Would really like some feedback. It is rubbery to the touch

    Void where prohibited.
    I think I'd fry it up and eat it.[​IMG]

    Unfortunately i do not know which one of my hens laid it. I have 11 of them. All acting and eating normal. I will definitely be keeping my eyes open this weekend and pin point which hen might be laying it. I will also add, this is the only one i have seen so as of now.

    x2 on Bubbles12345, that's called a lash egg and it's caused by an infection. Bubbles has given you some good material to read up on about what causes this.
