My 2 year old laying hen usually lays a huge egg everyday-for about 3 weeks they would get stuck for a couple of days and then she would just pop out a huge one on the ground-not in her usual laying box. She was clearly distressed with her vent opening and closing all the time, back end was very messy and I thought she was on her way out, after checking her closely I saw she had a slight prolapse. Since then she has recovered and back to her normal self. She is moulting now and off the lay so obviously she is having no problems since she is not making eggs. My question is: Is there anything I can give her so when she starts to make eggs again they wont be so big or can I just stop her making eggs, she is gorgeous and I dont mind keeping her as a non producing pet.
Anyway advise would be appreciated
Thanks in advance
