In all the 11 years I have had my chickens, this is a first. Nobody's laying right now because they're all molting. But today.... I get this and have no clue who laid it. Totally like a rubber egg. Cutting it open, looks like meat. WHAT IS IT???

Obviously, your coop has been invaded by alien creatures from outer space... I hear some E.T. Spawn larva can be tasty... let us know how it tastes!

... really I gave no idea, but am interested to learn also

Ha! I always wanted to meet an alien. But now I've cut him him half!

Can't be the only chicken this has happened to. I was surprised when I saw an odd looking egg in the nest and when I reached for it, made me jump back a bit when I felt the moist rubbery thing.

Thank you for this information. All of my hens are "older" starting at 4 years going to 9 years old. My eldest, Tubby, passed away several months ago at age 11. I suspect the rest will follow in time.

None of the girls seem to be ill, nobody's acting strange. Hoping for the best.
