im reposting this in this area of the forum. My Americauna is walking like a penguin. i have read a lot about impacted eggs. she has a bulge between her legs and it is soft when i felt it. I'm thinking the only thing i can try incase its a soft shell impaction is soaking her in warm water like i have read. she walks but you can tell she really doesn't want to if she doesn't have to but she does try to keep where the other hens are. she will eat. maybe, i just need to keep an eye on her? any help on this would be appreciated. i have also read about putting a little oil below, but i really don't want to do anything i don't know how and make things worse. i am new to chickens so it makes me sad to see her like that.
