Possible egg binding in pekin

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I noticed one of my pekin hens has a swollen belly this morning. I haven't tried to catch her yet but i took a lot of pictures. She's not really standing any differnt to her sisters but she is a little slower than them. Besides the swollen belly she seems happy but i know birds are good at hiding their symptoms and stress.
We had one hen that was going broody but I'm not sure if it was her.
I haven't really found anything online for diagnosing them or treating them. Is it just the same as treating chickens?

I caught her and felt her belly. It doesn't feel like an egg is in there but it does feel like it's full of fluid and it's warm but not hot
