Can a laying pullet suddenly become an internal layer? I have a BR who has become lethargic, standing alone, and being picked on horribly (the others have drawn blood on her comb). I know they all were laying at one time. I'm thinking she is egg bound, I soaked her butt, lubed it with oil, isolated her in her own coop but still nothing. She did seem to drink a lot when I put her in her own space but doesn't seem to be eating much and there is no poop on the floor (its been since yesterday) I do think I felt an egg near her rear but I don't know. I don't dare "go there" to get it. Are the symptoms different when a chicken is egg bound v. internal layer. What to do?
