I recently went out to clip the wings of my chickens finding one hen who had a poopy butt. I read about giving her a spa treatment with warm water with epsom salts so I proceeded with that task to find the glob on her butt was an egg. Her vent was incredibly swollen and red. I applied fungal medication as I had read to do. Today, I found her butt pretty disgusting so I gave her another warm bath. In the process of blowing her dry with a hair dryer I could see her breast bone sticking out. I have now read about Merek's but also that it might not be that and maybe just a problem with lack of weight??? She is eating and drinking. I also gave her 2 tsp of olive oil yesterday to get her "flowing" again. I have her in my office in a crate. I also have another hen in the office and now worried that they shouldn't be in the same room. The other hen flew the coop so to speak with one of my dogs catching mid flight. She is healing up fine. Am I doomed to have a hen hospital in my office now? Anyway worried about Henrietta and her globby butt and protruding breast bone. I made sure to puree some greens with egg shells which she seems to love. More advice would sure be welcomed. I am no chicken whisperer for sure!
