In the Brooder
- Feb 24, 2015
Hello, my 2 year old barred rock seems to be egg bound. But the thing is sometimes she acts lethargic and at other times she will be walking around the yard with my other hen eating bugs and such. When I look at her backside it seems like she's trying to push something out. I've given her a bath with epsom salt and used my finger to feel up her vent about 2 inches but didn't feel any egg. This is very confusing to me because at times she acts as if she is egg bound and at other times she acts fine. I don't believe a lack of calcium to be the problem as their feed contains it already. I'm planning on bringing her to the vet hopefully Thursday. Any suggestions? Please and thank you.
