    Multiple Lash eggs

    Dear all, Is there a way to treat lash egg without knowing which chicken has it? If yes, how?! I have already had a number of lash eggs in the past few months (first one found 30 Jan) and this chicken also lays eggs (because sometimes I get an egg with some lash stuff attached). I have 6...

    Strange Egg-like Material Laid by Sick-looking Hen

    Hi everyone! I have a strange issue that I'm hoping someone can recognize and help me with. We have a hen that's been acting "off" for a while now- maybe a month or more. She spends a lot of time sitting up on a perch and not doing much, but she does still go out, peck around, and eat. I've...

    Lash egg?

    Hi there, we have a 11 month old Splash Maran hen who laid what I believe to be a lash egg based on research (see images). She is otherwise healthy and has shown no other symptoms of illness, though I realize they hide it well. She free ranges and eats H and H layer feed supplemented with meal...

    Treating Salpingitis (lash egg) without a poultry vet, please help! xx

    One of my chickens has laid what I now believe to be a lash egg. I’m hoping to receive some clarification here about treatment possibilities, and my hen’s outlook. I do not have access to a poultry vet. My #1 suspect has always been a dodgy layer. Her first egg was a huge triple yolker, and...

    Treating for salpingitis - ok to use probiotic?

    Hello fellow flock keepers! A while back, I posted a thread with concerns with a hen who was laying rubber eggs and had diarrhea with some worms. Treated for worms. Turned out to be salpingitis (she layed a lash egg 😞) . Thankfully, there is an avian vet in the area, as well as an avian lab...

    what is wrong with my hen? (lash egg, naked bottom)

    Hi there. Me and my family are fairly new to owning chickens, with a little experience from the past. Recently we got 7 hens of various breeds and 1 rooster from some friends, and we love them so much. We left on vacation about a week or two after first getting them, and a seemingly healthy hen...

    My guess is a soft shell egg?

    Hi. I’m thinking this is the result of a soft shell egg (I have new layers) that most likely came from a newbie that has given me 2 double-yolked eggs so far. I know laying in the beginning can be wonky. I’ve done research and I don’t feel this matches a lash egg as from what I’ve read, lash...

    Whats wrong with the Hens?

    One of my hens has fallen ill. She is a RI Red and about 5 years old. It started with a poopy butt, and then turned into a swollen abdomen, tight with fluids, which one day even moved to her chest. She is now waddling like a penguin and uses her wings to keep her balance. I initially thought she...

    Early signs of Salpingitis/lash egg

    One of my hens laid a big lash egg today. We have had a sick hen (New Hampshire Red, about 4 yrs) with a swollen rear end since Jan. 1. At the time, she went to the vet, I had her inside for 10 days and we tried 2 antibiotics. Nothing worked, so we have put her back with the flock and she seems...

    Lash egg treatment

    Here I go again. My third chicken with lash egg. The last two lived for a good 6 months but I know she won’t have as long as she should anymore. Thats the last time I get ISA Browns. 😞 The last time I used an antibiotic. I think it was Baytril? I am having trouble finding an appropriate...

    Egg with soft tail

    My mom gave me some chickens a few months ago, and they came to live with me in the city. They have a large portion of the yard to roam, and we live near a big park with other wild animals which is not great because of hawks and wild birds with bugs on them. They do get bugs on them as well but...

    Lash Egg by my RIR

    This morning I found a lash egg in the nest box, laid by my RIR, Aubrey. I’m sure it’s salpingitis. 😢She was diagnosed by our vet over a year ago with an oviduct infection, and possibly oviduct cancer. Her overall energy is very good, she is eating at a healthy pace and is active when inside the...

    Help with Dioxytetracyline

    Got home from work and found my first lash egg. I immediately ran to TSC. They were out of Tylan but I was able to pick up a broad spectrum antibiotic called Duramycin 72-200. It's injectable though. I'm not sure where to inject it, for how long to treat or who to treat and how much. The...

    <Graphic Warning> Almost 2 year old Leghorn has been slowly getting worse. Poopy butt. Meaning nasty, unkempt, smelly runny diarrhea hanging on the feathers. Today was green. Green, I've found, is the warning sign that bad things are happening. Palpation of the abdomen showed a large...

    Aloha everyone! My sweet 2.5 year old RIR hen, Oia, had a swollen abdomen for at least a couple months that had her having soft poops, eating less, and loss of muscle mass. Her sister died in November from reproductive illness :( Oia seemed to be getting more unwell as her abdomen enlarged, and...

    Lash egg and green poop

    I found two lash eggs about a month ago. My vet thought it was just from our older hen not digesting well. A couple days ago my hen who was born in the spring was acting tired and wouldn’t eat. I made a previous post about both of these. She is eating and drinking and acting fine but I found...
