We have 8 nine month old NHR and we seem to be having a ton of problems right now. Most pressing would be the state of one of the two girls I have in my garage right now. Here are the details: -moved her in last week as a companion to my best girl who was bleeding as a result of pecking by her tail -this hen is one of the smaller and most docile (non pecker) -she has not laid an egg since she got in there -she doesn't seem to be eating much -she has developed some scaliness and bleeding on her feet -tonight I discovered a large swollen area under her belly, could she be eggbound??? -she feels thin other than this one area -these two are in a baby put door play yard with hay covering the floor, they are sleeping right in the hay and have a large tub on its side as a makeshift nesting box - they are getting their regular feed, water with cider vinegar, some wild bird suet and some scrabbled eggs here and there Questions: How can I tell for sure if she is eggbound? Should I soak her? Reach inside her vent? Seperate her from the one other she is with? How do you treat her if she is eggbound? Why are her feet bleeding? In addition to this chickens problems, we are having a severe problem with frostbite on the combs of several of our other hens who are still out in the coop. I didn't ge the vaseline on fast enough when the temps dropped and now they ahve large areas of black and then some spots turning white and some fluid filled areas. I have been putting antibiotic ointment on them once per day. Some are starting to look a little bloody in spots. I am so frustrated. I feel like giving up chickens at the moment. Can anyone help?
