    My hen has not been her self since Thursday. She spends most of the day laying in the nesting boxes yet she won't lay. When she does walk she is slow and awkward on her feet. Sometimes I will find her squatting. I gave her two baths to make her feel better and also clean her dirty butt. Today when I was putting her back in her cage after the bath there was watery poop on the floor. When I began to clean it up the POOP (it was poop) was dripping with orange goo- egg yolk. She hasn't laid a shell though. Did you think that there's an egg inside her?

    I haved cleaned up dog, cat, chicken, lizard, and ferret poop; but the smell of this made me want to throw up.

    She has been standing in the same place for an hour and a half. She keeps falling to sleep...

    I don't think she will hold up much longer.
