    Chicken Ma Out Of The Brooder

    Just got home from 2 days away and found one of my female banties with a swollen abdomen, sitting in a straight upright postion, like a kangaroo. She is skin and bones. Was fine previous to our leaving. She had watermelon as a treat the day we left. She is my BABY and I am sick about this. Is there anything I can do? I cannot feel an egg, just a bloated abdomen. Help please!!!
