I recently lost a hen and I think she could have been egg bound. I had 2 silkies and did not no the sex. I started to get a egg once or twice a month but didn't know who it was. My husband found one of the chickens dead. I never received another egg after she passed so the other is a rooster. Could the hen have been egg bound? I just recently started raising chickens. Can this be prevented and what are the warning signs ?
