    I was cleaning my chicken coop when I came across this. It was in some droppings. Looks like a piece of chicken meat. My coop is secure so it is not from some animal. Anyone have any guess? Idea? Thoughts?[​IMG]

    Those are rice hulls for perspective.

    It almost looks like the outside of a soft shell egg. Otherwise it's probably something shed from the chickens oviduct or intestines, sometimes stuff comes out.

    Thanx everyone. I have 15 Pullets just starting to lay. I guess it's just one of those anomalies associated with young hens.
