Poor Smellvis was acting weird yesterday, and I thought it was because she was trying to lay her first egg. She's a small chicken and this morning I didn't see her with the others. I found her barely moving with a bloody sac outside of her vent with an egg still in it. Poor thing---what a way to lay your first egg! So I brought her in and tried not to freak out, cleaned the area and gradually dislodged the egg so it came tumbling out of the membrane. I had to push the membrane back in but it was still pretty swollen around her vent and wouldn't go all the way in. I have her inside away from the other chickens. Should I give her antibiotics? (I'm sure I didn't get all the dirt/poop off the membrane, it was so messy). Should I disinfect with blue-kote? (never used before) Please let me know if you smart readers can think of anything else I should do. She's a sweetie and so purty. I hate to think of losing her!
