Anyone see this before? Our best layer, a 2 year old Red Star named Rover, is acting okay today. She is at the top of the pecking order and seems to have lots of energy. I got a warm egg of hers out of the nesting box this morning. The egg itself seems fine, but it had a tiny bit of blood and an odd gooey looking substance on it. Plus, attached to the goo is what looks like maybe a soft piece of egg shell: (Disregard the wood chips - that's what I line my nesting box with) So I went to look at the girl, and her vent is all wet looking, saw a little trickle of blood, and some white. I did not smell any odors. She seemed sensitive when I gently touched the feathers to get a better look. But her bossy attitude is intact and energy level seems fine. In any case, what is it?? How do we treat? Poor thing.
