I've got a year old Bantam that is acting sickly today. Shes staying warm and laying down and looking sleepy, very under the weather. Her breathing seems a little hard too, but no wheezing. I'm worried something is going on inside her with her egg making. I was checking her vent for diarrhea and i found a half formed soft membrane, like a shell that didnt form right. I gently pulled it out of her. Not sure how long it had been in there, it didnt have any feces on it but it was a little bloody. Shes been laying very oblong eggs lately, the past 3 they were ovalish with a tapered tip. We got an extremely funny looking egg today, the worse one ive seen so far. I also put her outside the other day and it was quite cold, i didnt think it would bother them but I wonder if this did her in. I'm keeping her inside today.
I cant get her to eat anything but I am giving her some water with nutrients in it. Im worried that maybe she has an infection in her or something from a malformed egg? I've felt under her abdomen and I cant feel anything, Im considering doing an internal check just to make sure. I'm really trying to get some calcium in her so maybe she'll form something and get it all cleaned out, but I'm worried because shes going downhill fast. Shes starting to look even more pale. Is there anything else I should do?
