I have a Millie fleur hen almost a year old. She began laying in Aug and was doing fine until new years day when she was eggbound. She did finally lay the egg
No eggs for two weeks then, in one day, a marble sized egg and a shelless egg. Since then, another shelless egg. What can I do to help her?

Are your other birds laying 'normal' eggs?
First, I would cut out all treats....feed just the layer feed and plain water.

Our other chickens are different breeds. We have a Brahma rooster and two Brahma hens; five Buff Orpington hens; two Peking ducks and one Mallard duck. Yes other eghs are normal. Other. Chickens get the pellets.
I actually took my chicken to the vet when she was eggbound. He says she has "a few" parasites but not too much of a concern if her vent is back to normal, which it seems to be. I'll try your suggestion. Thanks.
