    What should I do with a chicken that isolates herself from the others, looks swelled up, and she eats, but won't move alot. Do you think she is egg bound? Thanks!!

    HAve you felt around her vent for any hardness??? also check her crop for hardness or to see if it is extra large..,. Also is she sitting eggs ? if so she may just be going broody...

    Do you know when she laid last? I am dealing with an egg bound hen myself right now.
