    Another question for the experts on BYC.

    I found this thing in one of our nesting boxes. It was squishy and soft and it looks like an organ. Any ideas on what it could be?

    Looks to be what is referred to as a lash egg.

    Thank you for the information. It is spot on for what I found. Sadly. Not good news.

    I'm sorry.

    If she is still active and happy - seems to be ok (eating/drinking/pooping), then I would just keep and eye on her, love her and give some extra TLC and play it by ear.
