My Ruby was waddling around with "water belly" like she was bull legged. After consulting with BYC, we got our syringe, drained her best we could in one sitting. That evening, most of what was left just flowed out during the night in the coop. She had lost some weight but she is putting it back on now and doing great. She never really seemed to feel bad, she continued to eat and drink and was active, she just waddled and was having trouble breathing. She never stopped laying either. She is doing awesome now and I am very thankful for BYC.
