    Very informative! Thank you. and as if the poor things needed more to go wrong with them. or get them.
    You know when the industry producers cull every two years versus home chickens seems we have more
    to deal with and learn. Lots of hands on care and flock care.

    Fasinating!! Now is this more prone to commercial layers than backyard layers?

    Yeah no thanks. Lol i had on cysts on my ovary and that burst one day and that was extremely painful i cant imagine how painful it would be if all of those burst. Yeah no that would be just finish me moment. Poor chickens and this is a form of cancer in hens. I assume like one of the other post you posted these pictures in it feels like the hen has a water belly. I assume they die from this?

    None of the hens were mine, and according to the pathologist I use, this condition is not as common as the oviduct cancer I usually see. I'll look for the threads that I found the pictures in and you can read about them there.

    Good question... and I don't know, but I would imagine that it could be.
