One of my hybrid hens has been really off for the last few days. At first I thought she might have flystrike (seeing as one of my other hens had a mild case thats cleared up now) but have checked all over her with no signs of lice, mites, flystrike or worms. My hens are given vermex in their feed every month and their coop is regularly cleaned.
This hen has had problems with soft shells in the past, and I can feel a solid egg inside her. She has been on and off her food since yesterday when I brought her inside and she has lost a lot of weight. I have given her a couple of long baths and given her electrolytes and calcium. She is passing poos, but they are watery, which makes me worry. She is huddled up in a penguin position and has become pigeon toed, which is making me think that she's eggbound.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
