It's been a hard 3 weeks for my Butterscott girl that I finally put her down. Mineral baths, mineral oil up the vent, calcium you name it I did it but ended up having nothing work. She was becoming lathigit, sitting like a pequin and all fluffed up. Everything I read said egg bound.
So after we put her down i felt i needed to understand was she or not. So we did a very sensitive autopsy to see if there was and egg. The pictures I post I do only to have someone tell me if her vent was that plugged up with yolks. I am super sad so unless you can shed some light please do not comment.

I'm so sorry you had to euthanize your girl. :hugs You absolutely did the right thing.
She was full of lash material from internal laying or an impacted oviduct. There is nothing that can be done about this.
Kudos to you for having the gumption to open her up and exam her to discover what was wrong.

How can you avoid salpingtis? Is it calcium deficiency, to much protein? I have also had 2 chickens with atis fluid around stomach and just wondering if its something I am doing
