    It looks like an unshelled, not fully formed egg, maybe that was what was stuck in the duct. may get some more weird things from her until she has passed all of it.

    Looks like a 'lash egg'....sign of infection in the reproductive tract.

    I'm sorry :( don't feel too bad, not much you could have done anyway, and chickens are excellent at hiding their ailments until they are just about gone.
