I have a Red Sex-Link hen, named Cinnamon, who seems to be extremely eggbound, although I have no idea what's wrong with her. Her entire comb is blueish/purple and very cold, she can barely open her eyes, she has heavy breathing, she can't walk, and her entire bottom is bloated and swollen like a balloon. Please help!!! 1) What type of bird , age and weight: Red Star/Red Sex-Link hen, about 2.5 years old, weight unknown. 2) What is the behavior, exactly: not able to stand up, squinting eyes, heavy breathing, comb is purple/very cold, whole bottom bare and swollen/bloated like a balloon and feels very heavy-weighted. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? For about less than a day, just noticed it this morning when I went out to let them out, and she was lying on the coop floor in a corner with her head tucked into the wall. She has acted slightly eggbounded a few times before, but has always come out of it. 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? No 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma: Nothing besides the swollen/bare bottom, and she's missing a lot of feathers, but for some reason she has always lacked a lot of feathers lately, whether that's from molting or something else. 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation: I think she's extremely eggbound, but I have no idea. 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all: Cracked corn/egg layer pellets, plus free ranging and any other extra treats...and water is always available. 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Not sure yet. 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Separated her from the rest of the flock. 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? I would like to treat her myself. I love all of my chickens and I'm a vegetarian, so they're strictly used as pets/egg consumption and I have never had to cull a chicken, nor would I ever want to unless it was the last possible solution, and even then I would have someone else do it. I really don't want to cull her, although right now in her condition I don't know what to do. She's one of my favorite hens that I raised since she was a baby chick and it's horrible to see her like this. 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. No picture available right now. 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use: pine shavings/hay (nest boxes) Any help whatsoever would be appreciated! Thank you!
