Thank you. Well, what's strange is she is the only one with this chalky shell, that's one way to know it is her egg. But it's not consistently like that, maybe every other egg.
I was very hesitant about using anything, but we had one hen die last January and my daughter was really sad about it. Mommy you should've given her medicine. : ( Thought she might get over what she had, but she died in a few days. She was a 'roaster' chicken and she was always a bit 'off'. I think she had a heart attack. So when this one got sick, I just felt I had to do something.
The vet was hesitant about the wormer because he didn't find any in her poop, but he wondered if maybe gape worms, although he said he did take a look as far as he could and didn't see any. She had bad poop the whole time almost 2 weeks.I think he thought that since we already used Penicillin and Tylan, the wormer would cover all the bases.
Still hope someone knows about the watery egg white, and if this gets better? It strange to think that antibiotics ruins all the future eggs of a chicken.
I think your vet is not an avian vet. there is no way anything can stay in a body forever. commercial animals that people all over the world eat are fed with antibiotics and hormones and nobody cares. it is simply impossible that antibiotics will remain in chicken's body forever. it will only kill some of good bacteria but that is not problem for eggs.
