I have an uncomfortable adult RIR hen and I'm trying to decide what to do to/for her. Please help me diagnose her trouble & decide what to do. I think she's 2 or 3 years old, don't know for sure. But last night we noticed her standing off to the side of the coop looking very sorry for herself. I examined her more closely this morning & saw that her abdomen is very distended, swollen like a football. She had goopy poop on the feathers below her tail and her vent was also distended. I hosed off the poop and set her in a bucket of warm water for about 20 minutes. But nothing passed out, her abdomen is still swollen, her crop is flat, she doesn't show much interest in eating or drinking or anything else. The poor dear did get herself up into the coop and onto a roost tonight. The swollen abdomen makes me think she's laying internally. If that's true then I'm going to have to help her cross over to The Other Side of the Road before she gets too uncomfortable. I don't have the resources to devote to an attempt to treat her by draining fluid or dosing with antibiotics. But if she's simply eggbound & can be cured by removing the obstructing egg, then I would be willing to attempt that. Please let me know what you think her condition might be and what could be done, if anything, to help her. Thank you.
