    My oldest laying hen (around 22 weeks) was out free ranging with the others. While giving them treats I saw blood coming from her vent. Picked her up and she bad slimey clear bloody stuff coming from her vent. Checked the rest and they are fine..

    Do I need to seperate her? Could it just be linked to laying? Shes acting fine and eating great. Looking in the run and saw no noticable blood or diarrhea.. HELP

    Could be the egg laying. I got some bloody eggs once and when I posted on here I was told that its hard for them to lay eggs sometimes. Do you think she may have been egg bound and maybe the egg broke? That might explain the slime??? Just watch her for now hopefully someone else will pip in.
