    Found this in the nest box, and I haven't seen anything like it. It is relatively solid similar to thick jello. The 'egg' part is just over an inch and slightly transparent, the thing attached to it reminds me of fat and has a stringy thing attached.


    18 laying hens about 18 months, a few 2.5 month old pullets still way to young to be laying. I occasionally will get a soft egg or shell less egg, and rarely the miniature eggs but this is new.

    Hey phryan

    It looks like a lash-egg to me .. if you search BYC or Google lash eggs there are lots of informative posts and images of lash eggs and the reasons they occur.
