Hello friends, I have a hen who hasnt laid an egg in a while. I dont think she is egg bound but i’m not sure, She is pretty young about 10 months old. She just sits around and it seems like she is tired she sorta closes her eyes very slow. Im not sure if im making a big deal about this and she is just fine but I wanted to see what other people might say.
Thanks:)

What's your weather been like?

Gather her up and check her over for lice/mites, make sure her crop is emptying overnight.
Feel her abdomen below the vent, do you notice any bloat or fluid?

Hard to know what's going on with her, but it would be good to see that she's drinking well, then eat a little something.

Hello, I gave my hen a examination and when i felt her crop and it felt hard like a small hard lump. Do you know what this might be? thanks

She had swelling/fluid in the abdomen between her legs below the vent?
Check her crop first thing in the morning before she's had anything to eat/drink, if it's not empty, then use the article below to help you determine what treatment is needed for the crop.
