When my hen poops it looks like there may be an egg up in there.

    I am very new to chickens I have two barred rocks. I have had them a week and they have not laid an egg yet. It is cold and there where moved, so not laying seems pretty normal. But today when Mayflower pooped this morning I watched her closely for the first time. After she pooped it looked like there was a light brown egg in her anus. But she has still not laid an eggs. My question is does the anus look light crime colored? Or could there be an egg up there that she hasn't laid yet? Is this normal or do I need to do anything to help her?
