    I honestly have no idea what this is. Is it the same thing as internal laying? And is there anyway I can prevent it? How do I treat it? How do hens get it and at which age? I read about this so much but really don't know.

    Thank you!

    I'm pretty sure it happens when a egg gets stuck in the hen...but I'm not real sure on details...
