Thanks for the opportunity to learn and discuss chickens...I love them! I have 3 hens and 1 rooster all a mix of Rhode Island Red and ?. I've had them for about 2 months and they are just about the age for laying. One hen started to nest and produced 1 egg that was almost instantly moved, cracked and broken. I did'nt see it happen but I removed the egg so not to encourage egg eating. The hen however is not doing well. She has been in a nest now for 3 days, moving from 1 to another, and has white poop? coming from her rear. I moved her out of the nest to see what was going on and she instantly ran to another nest...it didn't look like she could stand...just squatted down. She is breathing heavily probably from the stress of moving her but I am worried. Got any ideas? I added diotomacious earth to their feed for parasites...recommeded by someone who raises chickens otherwise I feed them layer from Tractor Supply and until now have been flourishing. Help!
