Ascites or internal laying?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Over a period of about 3-6 months my hen Rosie has had a larger belly which has seemed to be getting bigger over time. And she hasn't been laying eggs. She is 2.5 years old and she is a red sex link.

Over the past week Rosie has been lethargic and lost her appetite a few days ago although her thirst is not effected. Again her belly is really full of water or something like a liquid. I've thought it was just internal laying or the egg yolk pertitious thing but now I'm thinking maybe ascities? Could ascities be what's causing this? If so how can I drain her? If this still sounds like internal laying how can I drain her of those fluids?

I gave hher antibiotics 3 days in a row by mouth with a syring and electolytes so days too.

Thanks! Me too!
A few days ago I figured out that Rosie has a impacted crop, I gave her water and massaged it and it seems less hard and less full.
