Hi, this is my first post, I'm a long term viewer of BYC, had hens for about 5 years.
After reading the posts I'm pretty sure this is Dropsy, (Ascities), see what you think..
Hen gone from normal to this overnight. We googled it and it fitted egg bound symptoms. Separated her and put her in a large cage in the house, bathing her in warm water, to get things moving, tried the lubed and gloved finger down the vent thing, couldn't feel an egg. Kept her inside, next day still same. Put her back with others and she's eating normal, running around, poohing normal and isn't in distress. Not laying but neither are few others because of time if year. Nothing untoward in pooh. Noticed abdomen is getting more swollen, walking like penguin.
what do you think she has please.
