post #11 of 17
Be careful because if it Burts inside I think she can possibly get an infection just keep an eye on her

okay, thank you!

She is still panting even though its 55- 60 degrees out. Is she still egg bound?

She also can have peritonitis and there isn't much you can do to treat that once infection sets in. Just keep an eye in her lots of water and electrolytes and if you have a chiChen vet you could take her in if you are worried. I'm lucky, my vet sees chickens too

Would antibiotics work at this point. I don't think she's infected yet if she has peritonitis

That's going to be an 80 dollar bill. It's not an egg thing though. You may want to separate her and give her antibiotics for 10 days. I wish you luck. Let me know your findings and results
