I noticed one of my girls is looking ratty and lost feathers bilaterally along her abdomen. I thought she might just be molting, although I thought everyone did it in the fall. I can't remember now if she did or not. I had just checked her for lice and mites and she looks clean. I had a worm test done at the vet in October and they were clear. Today I picked her up to check her out again and I noticed her abdominal skin is warm and reddish and her tummy feels distended. She's acting fine. The only think I can think of is that she might be at the beginning of being egg bound. Any ideas? I'm going to try the warm bath tonight and maybe get a pic of her tummy.
