    My chicken has white milky runny stuff coming from her egg hole. She also is loosing her feathers on her belly. She acts fine but it looks bad. Any ideal what's going on.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Could an egg have broken inside of her? As for her losing feathers, could she be experiencing a molt? If you could get a pic of her problems you could post in the emergencies injuries disease section. Here is the link ~https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures
    Give as much detail as you can as this really helps other members to help you and your girl.

    Wishing you the very best of luck :fl

    Has she been laying before this? She may be egg bound and if the egg broke inside her, this can be a medical emergency. Can you consult with a vet? Or please post in fullest detail at "Emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures,", thread

    Birds are great at hiding an illness, when they are truly looking and acting bad - they really need medical attention.
