What the H*** is this?! Have had a hen (black australorp) that has been feeling under the weather for about a week or so. Not eating, lethargic and increasingly bad diarhea. Started her on broad spectrum antibiotics and three days later (yesterday) found a large egg shaped glob in the coop. Was sort of a doughy looking mass and the hens were all picking at it so it was really difficult to determine what it was. Removed gross item and disposed of it. Today, I found this in the laying box as the hen exited. Large egg-type object, spongy texture with blood on end. Thought poor thing must have had a hard time passing this! When I pushed on the surface, a couple minutes later, blood oozed out - AHHH, its alive!!!! Well, just had to cut it open and here is the inside of it. Am I about to be overrun by aliens? It kinda sorta looks like a fertized chick? Any iseas?
