From another site: A hen who is egg bound cannot typically defecate. They're unable to pass solid waste around the egg, and so the blockage can cause further health problems for them. Wet droppings can sometimes pass around the egg. It's rare for them to defecate, howeverI thought my Leghorn hen was egg bound...but she is pooping, a lot. It looks normal to me. It is my understanding that they don't poop if they are egg bound, correct?
