Hello Everyone- My DH's fishing buddy has a chicken that has what appears to be a black colored leakage from her vent. She is not particularly tame, and I couldn't get a hold of her when I went with him to feed today. He is an older guy and cannot bend down to look and see the leakage. I tried to point it out to him but he just couldn't see it.
His chickens are not pet like, he keeps them strictly for eggs and meat.
I suggested that seeing as how they have seen her in one nest box continuously for the last few days, maybe she was egg bound (?). Michael said he didn't think so, but I said I would post and see what replies came back.....
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as that particular chicken is my favorite of his flock, and I do not want her to suffer. Could the leakage indicate something else?
Thanks in advance- Wendi
