Of course, however giving her hormones isn’t an option, and no matter how much I love my girl the spaying surgery is to much money. The vet told us to keep doing as we are, letting her live outside at night- 9:00 am, when we bring her inside and do her morning dose of meds, to keep her from getting infected. I will rest the vet and ask her what this egg means, if I can’t get anything from the BYCIs a vet an option?
Oh I hope not! I’m trying so very hard to keep her going, and keep her from being infected by her broken/soft shelled egg problem (she has laid 3 soft shelled, broken eggs, including that bloody one. I can’t understand as her feed is supplemented with calcium, and she gets milk every day. it must not be a calcium thing) I’m just so upsetMight be an infection of the oviduct and shell gland.
Ok, thank you so much! Would either option be expensiv?I would stop the milk and administer a daily tablet of calcium+Vitd3+VitK so the calcium will be absorbed properly. You could also bring her to your vet to administer calcium injection.
Milk leads to diarrhea in chickens as they are lactose intolerant. Feeding certain amounts of plain greek yoghurt or curds will be tolerated as the lactose is already metabolized.
