    She's a new layer and had a few soft eggs I noticed today she's not up to her regular self and has some gobby gunk hanging out might be another partial soft egg but it looks like it has "old blood" the brownish looking stuff in the goopy stuff not poop....her comb isn't pale and she eats and drinks just I can tell she's not up to snuff so what's up with this?

    I don't have experience with this, but I would have to assume that she is still just a new layer and isn't a pro yet. Keep watching for more responses.

    It's probably a broken egg. Not really much you can do but be supportive. If you can handle her without freaking her out, I'd set her in a pan of warm water to see if she can relax and get that stuff out of there, then maybe confine her in a darkened place to keep her quiet and resting, if you can. In the end I suspect she'll straighten out on her own, or not.

    Good luck.
