I don't think my hen is ok. I felt for a stuck egg and there isn't one. What could be up? She's actually still laying eggs I think.

Gather her up and wash off her bottom, post an updated photo of the vent and your hen and tell us more about any symptoms that you observe - lethargy, loss of balance, lice/mites, etc.

Sorry it took a bit she disappeared yesterday after so i had to wait until today. I was cleaning her butt and I noticed now there was something sticking out of it and I think she actually did have a stuck egg and it busted. Will she be ok?

I took what was sticking out out of her and that's why I think it might be a crushed egg.

I'm no expert, but that doesn't look like egg material. Is it possible that she ingested something?
I guess it's possible but there are bits of Shel in it. So she was looking like she wasn't feeling good a few days ago but it's getting colder here and the only thing she was doing was looking like she was cold so I ignored it. Then my mom said all 3 roosters ganged up on her for sex and then the next day(yesterday) she had the poopy butt and I posted about it. If she was acting off because of a stuck egg could the roosters going at her have crushed the egg? One rooster is probably over 20lb then the other 2 are more her size. ( She's a sexlink)

I honestly don't know. Hopefully others will chime in and be more helpful.
