    So I have this year old light Sussex hybrid and she was a totally normal hen until a couple of months ago when she consistently (and still does) only lay eggs which do not contain yolks. After a lot of research and talking to the hatchery where she was purchased we came to the conclusions that it was her genetics. But anyway I just witnessed her poop this out and I've no idea what it is! I've never seen anything like it, any suggestions?!

    It could be I don't know? My other hens really wanted to eat it so it could have been some kind of egg material

    Did you look up lash egg? I don't think it's a good thing. [​IMG]

    Chickens like to eat a lot of stuff, even Styrofoam. [​IMG]

    Well it stinks that your girl isn't laying you beautiful eggs. [​IMG] But I am glad she seems to be doing OK! [​IMG]
