It might not be an egg but part of the reproductive tract. The bird that produced that may stop laying. You might not notice any other symptoms or problems. Sometimes these things just happen.

If you are game cut it in half and take another pic.

It's a lash egg. Not actually an egg as 70%cocoa said, but coagulated pus, sloughed off bits of the oviduct and sometimes egg gunk. It's caused by an infection and subsequent inflammation in the oviduct, called Salpingitis.

As 70%cocoa said also, sometimes it's accompanied by other symptoms, but other times there is no outward signs of problems. Some can go on to live for a while after a lash egg, others will die in a relatively short period of time after (weeks to months).

There isn't much you can do about it so at this stage I wouldn't worry too much. Just keep an eye out for any signs of health problems.
