Help: Hen pecked chicken standing straight up

    Probably a 3 year old Red hen. (forgot the actual breed...sorry)

    We found a couple of other chickens pecking at this one. We have her separated from the flock with a good amount of damage.
    She isn't laying any eggs right now, and is standing almost vertical (as apposed to her normal horizontal).

    I am half thinking she is backing up with eggs (not good).

    Is there a cure other than turning her into chicken soup?

    Hi and [​IMG] . I think if you search egg bound you will find some recommendations. Sorry I'm not of more help.
