I already had one chicken like this that I ended up putting down. Her oviduct was FILLED with huge lash eggs. Now I have another one with the same symptoms except I seem to have caught it sooner and several months later, she is still alive but no change to her belly. In both cases, it seems to be something they developed coming out of molting. My guess is salpingitis and I would further guess it's caused by the same thing that shows up in other hens as bumblefoot.I don't know where that is coming from. Feed is kept dry and clean in a metal garbage can and it's under cover, not out in the weather. Water dishes are elevated and changed often to keep the water clean. Anyway, the hen's issues/symptoms are: Enlarged/hard belly/bottom - like from her vent to her legs, not from her legs up to her chest. It has kind of pushed her legs further apart. Comb - pale and small (about the same as you would see during molt) Occasional runny poo Occasional penguin stance, but she also moves around fine. She gets up on the roost, runs around the yard fine. She does not, however, lower down onto her feet when roosting but stays more upright. Loss of breast muscle mass She does NOT and has never shown symptoms of - rasping, wheezing, coughing, eye discharge, nasal discharge On internal exam - I can feel there is *something* filling up her abdominal cavity, but I don't know what or how to get it to pass. I'm assuming lash eggs, but how do I get her to get them out? We do not have a vet anywhere within a 4-hour radius that treats chickens and as much as I love her, I'm not driving 4 hours. Treatments so far: For the better part of the past two months, she's been on oxytetracycline. Currently, she is off the OTC and I'm working on trying to get some weight on her. She gets two daily meals of oatmeal and mealworms with some vitamins and electrolytes. Periodic warm water soaks with epsom salt. What else can I and should I be trying? Aside from not wanting to lose another hen to this, I'd like to have some clue of what it is and how to prevent it ideally, but at the very least treat it going forward. Thank you for any insight you can share.
