My daughter discovered my year old (got her last March as a new chick) Silver Laced Wyandotte lying in the yard this afternoon. I thought she might have been hit by a car, but she wasn't near enough to the road to make it where she way laying. She had egg yolk coming out of her nostrils and mouth. I was trying to remove it, massage her throat and clear the way, but it didn't seem to help. I know egg eating is a bad habit, and it had only just begun. I found what was left of an egg in the coop two days ago, and was hoping to discover who the culprit was, just not like this. If anyone has any insight on both egg eating and choking, I'd appreciate it. I want to be able to help if it happens to anyone else in my flock.
