    First time trying to share pics here. And I've tried to add for pics and a video two ways - embedded and as a link. Sorry but these pics may be gross to some. And let me just say all hens are acting healthy as normal. That said, what is this thing I found in the nesting box? Thanks all! Five years with chickens, never seen this.

    Looks like a lash egg... put lash egg in the search box and you should get some informative threads...
