    I can't really tell without more information. Is there anything there that looks like a crushed egg without a shell, or flesh colored material that could be a lash egg? Has she been laying, or has she had any diarrhea?

    Haven't seen any lash eggs. No diaherra. She lays sporadically, it looks like cooked egg whites, I wasn't able to hold her - I will try in the am when it's light out and can see better.

    She could be laying internally.

    Lash eggs which are odd eggs laid from problems like internal laying and salpingitis, look different in many cases and here are some examples where they have been dissected:
