    I need some help! One of my Rhode Island Reds became a little ill and I thought she was egg bound. But I followed all the steps to making sure and I never found and egg. Several days later she was fine, but I never saw her lay an egg. Three days ago I picked her up and he stomach is all hard so I brought her home soaked her and did all the same steps again. Then I read about water belly so I use the needle and syringe and got out a lot of fluid. She seemed fine and today I found her dead. I decided to open her since I wasn't sure what was wrong with her and when I opened her she was full a solid yellowish almost look like egg yolks but they were very larger and bunched together. Can anyone tell me if this was egg bound and I was never able to feel and egg???

      Hi there. You should make your own thread. This article is not related to ANYTHING with chicken health.. Click on forums and go to the sickness forum and post a thread there.

    Sadly a lot of these are not enforced, and it leaves newcomers like me with a bad taste in the mouth. A lot of the users who post a lot are allowed to bully the newbies, it's just not a nice atmosphere at all... I've personally seen many newbies asking question only to be told to use the search button, I mean come on how hard is it to just answer the question? and the cliques here are nauseating to say the least. Perhaps taking on unbiased moderators is a start? The members should all be treated equally no matter how many posts they may or may not have.

      Sorry anyone gets this treatment, it will always be in media, at work, schools, or even in families. I ask a lot of questions, and try to help others with answers or ideas whenever asked. You will need to build a wall to this and continue to ask what you want. Everywhere in life there are those that know everything. I for one am not book smart, I have learned from questions, trial and error as well as self tought to do many things. Hang in there.

      Yeah, those random ramblings cliques are TIGHT. It's like trying to crawl through a woven basket.

      So I have a question for you. Posting picture of DEAD predators is not allowed, but we can post pictures of dead chicks? The reason why I ask is because I had some chicks that didn't hatch and I posted them on the FB page and in the main information area i posted GRAPHIC PICTURES I was told I followed the rules and then I was told by two ladies that I didn't and they were going to report me. The thread was good and a lot of people had a lot of great information and others have had the same issue. So can you please tell me what I should have done!

    Dutchbunny I agree...social media sites are clogged with profane language these days

    These are great rules! The use of swearing, profanity, etc., gets quite aggravating in some social media websites. It's nice to have that not be used here. The part about harassing others is also great.

    It is always important to stand with all rules whether you feel strongly that these rules can be changed. It is more important to have one person tail blaze on what they feel is right. But time and talking will only bring us all closer to finding a solution that benefits all of us in the long terms, and like all meaningful, minds coming together. This all takes time. Working together is a rather easy step as taking these steps forward to make as all more reliable and trustworthy from working to improve om small size situation to finding someone to take on biigger eyeopening situations and problems that can be resolved, one step closer...we all want peace and happiness. Lets take those steps forward many more times. To show others we all want the same goal, that is happiness and happinees to each out and help our fellow friends!
