    Please see photos. Found this today in the poop under the roost. This is not the first time I have seen this type of substance but this is the most intact I have seen. Every time I see this it is in poop. What the heck could this be? When I broke opened there was a fleshy thing inside. Gross. [​IMG][/IMG]

    It looks like 'lash'. Do an onsite search by typing 'lash' in the search bar at the top of the page.

    Last time I found something similar it was in the middle of this poop. I moved it to get the photo.

    That is not good news. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

    There is a good article by TheChickenChick if you search for "Salpingitis in chickens" that will explain lash eggs and their cause.
