It looked huge, until I saw the end of the key, so I would say yes. To be sure cut it in half. It should be the same creamy layered material all through, although the few I've seen were paler in colour. Perhaps there is a yolk inside?

It was in my mums chicken coop. She said it had several layers of rubbery stuff and then some liquid inside and was the size of a large egg.

The rubbery stuff is the lash; layers of shed oviduct lining. Perhaps the liquid was egg white?

Yep, I wouldn't worry unduly about it.
