    Yesterday I went to gather and found an egg and this other thing in the box. It was tough and fibrous with something resembling an umbilical cord hanging from it. Inside was yolk but also thick on one end of tissue. None of the hens appear to be having any trouble. What is this????[​IMG]

    Possibly a weird rubber egg?

    It's tissue. If it was a human I would say it was the uterus. Not sure if a chicken has an organ like that but will research more.
