I have 4 hens that just turned a year old. Lunesta, my white hen (breed unknown, pictures below), was the first to start laying, but they were always those weird soft-shelled eggs. Since my chickens free-range on acreage (they roost on my porch right next to the front door), I generally have no idea where they lay their eggs unless I stumble upon them by accident. Only one of my hens uses the nesting boxes I built for them. Anyway, I don't think I have ever seen Lunesta lay a proper egg. Possibly an undersized egg with a hard shell in the beginning, but the other 3 hens lay brown eggs and that's all I've ever seen. However, I will occasionally find an exploded soft egg beneath their roosting spot or lying out in the yard. About 3 months ago, Lunesta became extremely lethargic. I thought she might be egg bound, and since it was winter I brought Lunesta inside for soaks in warm water and confinement with a heat lamp. She improved quickly but never laid an egg during the week I had her indoors. She's been doing great since then, but a few days ago I noticed that her bottom was disgracefully dirty (with dark poop), so last night I brought her inside for another warm bath to get her cleaned up. She has always been a quiet bird, but she seems more subdued than usual, and last night I noticed that her stools were very watery, and one of them appeared to have yolk and albumen in it. She is eating and drinking okay, but she is still having watery stools. When she's awake and walking around, her tail is perked up, but she gets droopy during her naps. Any advice? I've done a lot of research here, but I am still unsure as to what exactly might be going on with Lunesta. NOTE: I have never wormed my chickens. I have checked them for mites and found none. The other 3 hens are perfect pictures of health with no history of any problems. No recent changes in diet or environment. EDIT: After further reading I think it seems likely that she is an internal layer. Am I correct in thinking that there's really nothing that can be done for this?
