    My daughter said this chicken hasn't laid an egg in a while. The bottom is swollen and pasty looking. Please any advice would be much appreciated.i have attached a photo.

    I'm certainly no expert, but maybe search for "egg bound" in the search box and see if the threads describe what you are seeing.

    All the best
