I have a 1 year old EE. I feed Purina layena pellets-they have been getting treats which I have cut out of their diet altogether. Anyway....last Friday when I got home from work I noticed my EE straining a bit, I watched her mope around the run, straining for about 20 minutes, she then laid an egg with a thin shell, it actually bounced when it fell on the ground. She then started pecking around, eating and acting normally. I didn't expect her to lay on Saturday and by that night she was straining again. I waited, they all went to bed. Next morning, Sunday, she had runny egg stuff coming out of her vent-she was still hunched over. I decided to soak her in a warm epsom bath and give her some tums. While doing this I pulled out a thin, squished, very soft egg shell out of her. She was very lethargic, appetite low- she wouldn't even eat any treats. By the afternoon though she perked up and was eating, preening, dust bathing and acting normally. Monday night after work more hunching over, although nothing was "leaking" out of her vent. I scrambled up some egg with the shell and she was not interested at all. I soaked her again and gave her some tums. I expected her to be gone in the morning. She is NOT gone and has been acting pretty normal, doing all the chicken things except...laying eggs. She did go in the nest box yesterday and today but no eggs. Is there something else I should be doing? Or just cross my fingers and hope for the best?
