Help: Hen pecked chicken standing straight up

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Probably a 3 year old Red hen. (forgot the actual breed...sorry)

We found a couple of other chickens pecking at this one.  We have her separated from the flock with a good amount of damage.
She isn't laying any eggs right now, and is standing almost vertical (as apposed to her normal horizontal).

I am half thinking she is backing up with eggs (not good).

Is there a cure other than turning her into chicken soup?

Hi and welcome-byc .  I think if you search egg bound you will find some recommendations. Sorry I'm not of more help.
