Is she egg bound? What can I do for her? - Page 3

She was okay when I left for work yesterday morning. She came out of the nest box to say hi, and she was eating a drinking. But when I got home, she was in the nest box, barely alive. I brought her in the house and held her in a blanket and talked to her until she passed. So she at least died comfortably, and felt safe. It breaks my heart that I wasn't able to make her well again. But I am happy that I was able to be there with her in her final moments.

I know that may sound sappy and weird to some. But my chickens have always been my babies. I don't call myself MsChickenMomma for nothing. smile.png

Thank you, everyone that gave me advice on things to try. I greatly appreciate it.

I'm sorry to hear that. sad.png It's always hard losing a flock member, but all your efforts show you truly care.

Not sappy. She was a lucky bird to have had you. I'm dealing with the same with a hen now. :fl
