In the Brooder
- Apr 3, 2016
I searched and searched but really not sure on the fix. My EE may(not sure it was her) have layed an egg for the first time last week. it was intact. 3 days later found 2 softshell eggs layed both broken. Nothing since until... So this afternoon let all 5 chickens out to free range for a few minutes before bed. Noticed her vent was wet and winking non stop. Looked like yellowish discharge and also clear discharge. ewww. Meanwhile i rounded them up back into their coop and there was an rubber egg on the grass. Someone, probably her, dropped it right in front of me and i didnt see! I cleaned up her bottom and put her on the roost for the night. I am worried! Should I be? What could it be? infection? was she eggbound? an infection? please advise as I really like this little bugger> Thank you!!
