    Hi there,
    i have 10 chickens in my backyard.
    one of them seems to not be eating her grain and been walking around the backyard with liquid coming out of her.
    i though it must have been egg bound, but a broken egg.
    In the past i have dealt with egg bound chickens and how to fix them, but i havent ever had a chicken with a broken egg inside of her?
    i dont know what to do or any special treatments.
    hopefully you can help me since the chicken that has eggbound was one of my chickens that i breeded.
    Thank you very much!

    [​IMG] you can post in detail on "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," forum. Do you have a vet that treats chickens? I am thinking this is a serious condition because the parts that stayed inside her can set up a bad infection.
