    I am crying my eyes out right now. I just lost the most beautiful Wheaten Amerucana Bantam pullet. Her name is Banana, and her birthday was in two weeks. She was going to become a hen, and I lost her! I miss her so much. We think she was egg bound. Was there anything I could of done? I was at school and came back to find her on her side in the corner stiff. She never showed any signs. I feel like its my fault. How can you tell if they were egg bound?

    I'm so sorry to hear this. We do all we can, but nature has more twists than we can imagine.
