Hi there, We are having a rough chicken week- we had 5 last Saturday, and now only 1 is left due to a major predator attack. I am planning to find a new home for the one remaining chicken so she has company- it's so sad to be the only one left and she just seems confused and doesn't quite know what to do- but now she seems to be having some problems with passing a broken egg?? I found her on the roost this morning way after she normally gets up and she looked like she was trying to poop or pass an egg. She was being pretty lethargic too. I started periodically massaging her and letting her rest, and I could feel a large lump inside, but it didn't feel completely hard like an egg- maybe an egg with no shell? At one point, while massaging, I heard a kind of squishy noise and it sounded like she was passing gas then some stuff that looked like egg whites came out, but just a little. I have continued massaging her and letting her rest periodically and she the same thing happened a couple more times, but it doesn't seem like enough to have been everything inside her. According to advise I found on this forum, I soaked her in warm water and continued massaging, and I also flushed her with a vinegar water solution (1tbsp white vinegar in 1 quart water). When I flushed her out, the water came out again looking clear, and she seemed to perk up after this. I have been letting her rest and keeping an eye on her, and she seems mostly normal but her vent keeps contracting over and over as though she's still trying to pass something. And she's not eating or drinking, but just standing or laying around. If anyone can give any words of encouragement I would greatly appreciate it. I really don't want anything to happen to her but I am very worried because she's been through a lot this last week- she herself had half her comb bitten off by whatever it was attacked the girls in the night, and has been recovering from that. Then having all her friends die, then this. I'm sure this is related to the stress of the whole week- and I really don't want it to get the best of her!
