    Hey Flock! I found my silkie hen hunched up in the coop, and sure enough egg is running out her backside... Epsom salt bath first right? I have pencilin, but I’m not sure if that would help. Should I scramble her an egg? Should I reach inside of her to try and retrieve pieces of eggshell? I got suspicious when she slept in the beatbox last night, but so were the other hens, and so I didn’t suspect anything at the time... she does that a lot.
