This evening amid my fretting over my broodies, fretting over my roo's injured leg and fretting over all the other things I fret about, I noticed that my EE Pumpkin was acting a bit "off". My least favorite as a chick, Pumpkin has really grown on me. Pumpkin stopped free ranging and just sat down in the middle of a field. When I tried to pick her up, she ran off only to sit down again somewhere else. When she finally did get up to head towards the coop, she was walking kinda funny and she didn't peck at anything along her way. When she got to the coop I cornered her. When I picked her up, she initially fought me. After a few seconds she calmed down, with me stroking her beard and her back. I checked well between her pelvic bones and didn't feel anything. Checked again a few minutes later; still didn't feel anything. Pumpkin appeared to sleep in my arms. Third time I checked, I felt a plop. Soft-shelled egg laid right in my hand. Now I know what they look like when trying to pass one and now I know you can accidently, maybe on purpose, help them to pass it. Learn something new every day.
