Hi! I'm really worried about one of my Rhode Island Reds; she is 2 years old and displaying symptoms of an egg binding chicken . She walks around with her tail down like a penguin, has poop stuck all over her vent and surrounding feathers, mostly sits around without eating or singing, doesn't roost at night, occasionally squats like she's straining to get something out, and is isolated and attacked by the other girls. After some research, we decided that she must be egg binding and tried keeping her in a warm humid area for a couple hours, and then soaked her lower half in warm water for 20 minutes, but the egg hasn't come out D: We've been keeping her inside at night and taking her outside a little during the day. I gave her a heating pad but she doesn't seem to like it :/ She's been like this for well over a week, so I'm beginning to wonder if we misdiagnosed her or if there are more affective ways to treat her. Any words of wisdom are appreciated. Thank you just for reading this this is my first post on BYC - I joined because I could really use some advice! This is my first real problem with any of my ladies and I want to make sure I treat her right and do all I can for her!
