My Sweet Aunt Marge, barred rock, is unable to walk/stand normally. She is in a crouched position, rump and belly low, tail feathers down--like a hawk is about to swoop upon her. This doesn't stop her from walking around but always in this low crouch. She is not limping or favoring one side so I don't think it is a leg problem. I felt her belly and it seems large and distended. I think her vent area seems normal. She is not listless. Any suggestions? I do love this mischievous chicken. I posted this problem a few days ago and one person responded (bless you) that I should soak her and check for an egg. She is continuing to live in this pathetic crouched position. She is popping at least somewhat because it sticks to her rear feathers since she is in a sitting position. I am providing grit. Question One: What is the best way to soak a chicken? and Question Two: Any other ideas?
