Egg Binding: Symptoms, Treatment and Prevention

I was worried about this. I really don't want my girls to get it! But, I know it could happen so I found this article! GREAT ADVICE! Thank you! :goodpost:
Thank you for writing this.
I am getting ready for our first flock of four hens and one of my biggest worries is what to do if/when the birds get sick. The thought of having responsibility for an animal that is in pain or at risk really ruffles my feathers so to speak. Your practical advice is very clear and reassuring.

I’ve had to deal with egg binding and a broken egg in the oviduct on three occasions.
This as near to the advice I received from my vet as anything else I’ve read.
A particularly good point about making a small hole in the stuck egg and syringing out the contents.
A little more detail about flushing out any remnants of egg would have been useful.
I prefer to use coconut oil to Vaseline’ it’s less viscous.
If you use bookmarks then add this article.
Well written informative and intelligent advice. There aren’t many articles this good.
