Hey guys! I'm pretty sure my RIR is egg bound. She is about 7 months old and starting laying 2 months ago. Yesterday morning she was waddling like a penguin, and squatting a lot. Her belly is swollen and red, and bare. She keeps plucking. I have given her 3 warm baths with Epsom salt, feeding her tums with her food, and using some lubricant on her vent. This morning during her salt bath, she took a very large poo in the water. She did not poop at all yesterday. She is moving around a bit more, and eating/drinking some. Her comb and wattle are in good shape. Is this is a positive sign? Am I a wishful thinker? No egg yet. Any feedback or knowledge is appreciated!
