I have a Wyandotte hen who is at the age to start laying(6 months old). Yesterday she was fine, today she has an egg shaped mass at her vent (or could be her vent) that is bloody. The feathers around and below it look like its covered in what could be yolk as its whitish yellow. She seems alert, barely has an appetite but is very antisocial with the other chickens. She tries to pass it, and only white stuff comes out. Does this sound like being egg bound? She is one of my favorite chickens, and so social to me. If It is egg bound, I don't want her to suffer and would like the most humane and painless way to put her down or fix the issue. Thank you.
The reason there are no pictures is because Im too upset looking at her to hold a camera still.
