Here's the deal. Hen has a distended belly but it's not rigid. I recently watched her poop and it was normal. Her stomach though is so enlarged that she cannot hop up into the hen house and she literally walks duck footed with her bottom side down, but she has been eating and drinking fairly normally. This hen hasn't been egg bound before and I really don't think she is this time because she still wants to get around and scrambles for scratch like all the other hens. Every time I've had a hen egg bound they don't want to move. I can really think of much else but if it's a simple fix I'd like to avoid a vet bill. Let me know.
