I tried posting this last night...my 3 year old leghorn has a history of laying troubles that started when she was about 2. Brittle eggs, shelless eggs found in the nest, transluscent eggs, you name it. Then they got better, then they stopped. Now, she seems to be filling up with egg matter. Her body is so swollen now, I had to lift her into the henhouse lastnight. She's all muddy as she really can't even walk. She looks awful, but is still trying to eat and is some. She has always had a great and crazy personality. I want to try to save her, but this is going to be her last day. I wan't watch her suffer. Is there anything I can do to fix this, I am not squeemish, and if not, is it easy (I hate to say tis) to cut through a chicken's neck with kitchen shears?
