Hi, Complete novice so please excuse my lack of technical knowledge and also chicken parts..... I have 14 hens, ex free range farm. Yesterday one of the hens seemed tired and lacked interest in food. This morning she didn't run to the feeding pot. She is drinking and I've been in and fed her some meal worms which she had no trouble with. On the downside she seems bloated and puffed out....here's were my lack of knowledge really kicks in. Just below her neck there is a large ball which the other chickens have too but hers seems larger. It is fairly soft to touch. I have tried checking around her bottom area to see if she is egg bound but not really sure what I'm feeling for although I definately couldn't feel an egg (again not sure if checking in exactly right place!) Her crest is pale and fairly small but this hasn't changed. We've only had them for just over a week so at this stage I've no idea whether she's ever laid an egg (we don't get 14 per day) but she has no loss of feathers. The rest of the hens are lively and well so am worried about this one. Sorry for waffling.......anyone any thoughts/advice?
