I have 5 RIR hens that are about 2 years old. Very Healthy until recently. One of the hens was egg bound(not sure how long, but I noticed it on Saturday). I immediately isolated her and removed a broken egg(already broken) from her vent, cleaned her vent area, and trimmed all the droppings/broken eggs from her feathers. I could not feel any more fragments or anything, so I cleaned the area and put her back in isolation. She is acting normal(eating, drinking, pecking, etc), but still acts like there is something "stuck" and like she is trying to pass something large. Is it possible that she has more eggs stuck? Do they "back-up" if she can't lay? HELP! Tonya Edited to add- She(and all my hens) is free range/locked up at night. Their "friends" are a dominique rooster, a mixed Rooster, and a Muscovy drake. The drake(who out weights them by probably 7 pounds) has been caught trying to mate with them a few times... could this be what caused the egg to break inside her? T.
