I have been raising chickens for four years and, fortunately, have never had a sick one. The day before yesterday I found one of our girls sitting down in the coop looking very weak. I immediately moved her to a separate cage in the garage to observe her. She begin eating and drinking so I thought, perhaps, it was a case of the other chickens bullying her to the point that she had not been unable to get to her food and water. But as I watched more throughout the day, she sat most of the time; her eyes looked very weak and she was having trouble keeping them open. When she was standing she seem to be a little hunched over. Now I think she could be egg-bound. Here’s my question: I felt inside of her vent (with Vasoline/glove, etc) and did not immediately feel anything—but off to the right side, it felt like there could be an egg there. I’m sorry to be such a novice here but when you’re feeling for the egg would it be directly in line with the vent or could it be off at a right angle? Not knowing what is going on I did give her an Epsom salt bath tonight trying to relax her—in case she is egg-bound. She is definitely not feeling well but did go to sleep standing up tonight vs. lying down. I appreciate any insights you can provide!
