I have a 3 year old BO who will only lay dawn and won't eat or drink. I thought at first she was egg bound. But now after more research I think she has ascites and is also no eggbound. I had no idea what what causing the problem with her swollen abdomen until now. I finally found a tread that showed a picture and gave a description of what was going on. I feel like I am to late Her comb is dark and she just lays there and won't do anything, I didn't want to press much on her swollen abdomen but I do think I may feel an egg in there. I don't know what to do for my poor old girl! If I attempt to drain her will that help at this point or put her through even more stress?? I wish I had known what to do sooner! I feel so bad for her I can't stand for them to suffer.
