Tonight I looked under my chickens' roost and found these (look at bottom center, 1 large white thing and a smaller one to the left of it) These white things are very rubbery and were kind of like silly putty. You press into them and they don't break; they just bounce back up when you let go. I don't think that strand is a worm; I messed around with it and it seems to be the same substance. But I could be wrong. The "pod" was located right above these, but I removed that first. This "pod" was cold, wet, and felt rubbery, but more like a balloon kind of rubber, just thicker. Neither the "pod" nor the "yolks(?)" were smelly. I have 2 generations of chickens; one that is 2 years 1.5 months old and another that will be turning 1 year old on May 8th. They have a large run and are out from 8:30 AM to Sunset (now around 7:40 PM but some go in around 8). One has calcium buildup on her eggs (I'm trying to keep her stress low, and she's a newer layer). She doesn't sleep on this roost often, but she may have been on there today before being kicked off. Do you have any idea what these are and what causes them? I'm assuming there is something seriously wrong here. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
