Yellow Jelly Beans???

My Golden Seabrite Bantam hen that turned 7 years old last month had what looks like yolk-colored "jelly beans" in her poop. Is this normal or an indication of an internal problem? A medium-sized rooster (that we promptly gave away) jumped her to mate last year and we had to take her to the vet. We had to give her injected antibiotics for two weeks before she snapped back to health. I think she is getting ready to come back on line to lay eggs, but the "jelly beans" have me concerned.

Thanks in advance,

I'm going to bump this thread. I've never really heard of this happening before, and and interested to see if it's common in older chickens for later reference. To me, it sounds like she's just going through some kind of chicken menopause.
I don't's really weird. I don't know if it is a result of the rooster hurting her insides, or if it is something that happens to older hens.

Anybody else want to chime in with some other theories?
