One of my girls went egg bound awhile back & never really recovered. She got over the first egg that was stuck inside her & I saw her lay one more egg & that was it. Well, she started acting sluggish & started loosing weight so I took her to the vet. I had taken her to the vet the first time as well. Anyway, I bring her in the vets clinic he looks at her & says she has a broken egg inside her & she's running fever. He suggested that I should put her down. I didn't want to but I let him do it. Now I'm wondering if I did the right thing. I never thought I'd miss a chicken but I do.
