Help please I have a year old isa Brown hen. She is very ill. I have doagnosed her with egg bind. She hasnt had a bowl movement in 10 hours. What do I do?
You can take a rubber glove and examine her internally 1-2 inches to feel for an egg. If you feel an egg, give her some calcium in the form of a calcium tablet, Tums, or liquid calcium by mouth. Calcium and a warm bath can relax the muscles to pass an egg. Has she been wormed, or have you added any new chickens lately? How does her crop feel? Is she interested in eating? Has she been laying? ISA browns can lay gigantic eggs and double yolkers, so the egg binding might be a good guess.
