Glad you joined the flock. I'm not sure what it is? But more information would be very useful, ie where was it found? What is concerning you about it? I'm sure with more info people will be able to help
I found it in one of the nesting boxes, it has blood on so it just worried me a little!
It could be a Lash Egg? Never seen this, but a google search shows some examples. There are threads in BYC on similar looking ones, but no answers there. Have you cut it to see what it looks like inside? If not, do and that may help in identification. You can post this question in emergencies and maybe get someone with experience to help.
Welcome, glad you joined us. Good luck with a definitive answer.
Glad you joined us!
That looks like a lash egg to me, but I could be wrong. For more answers, I would post in the Emergencies section of the forums ( Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures)or in the Chicken Behaviors and Egg laying section (Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying).
x3 on lash egg
Hens who are older and nearing the end of their laying days will sometimes lay these lash eggs so if you have older hens, it's likely that's what this is.
Hello there and welcome to BYC!
X3 It is a lash egg. Part of the reproductive tract lining was shed. They can do this at any age. I had a young pullet do this once, but generally it is the older layers. Many times when an older layer lays a lash egg, she is nearing the end of her laying days.
Welcome to our flock!
