    One of my hens went broody this spring. She was using the main box where all the hens like to lay their eggs. I have 3...they just like to lay in that one box. Anyways the rest of the hens moved on to another box except my BCM. She hasnt laid for about 4 weeks now and there is a large ....bulge at her rear end. Wondering if anyone else has ever came across this and if there is any solutions?

    she could be egg-bound, i don't know much about it because i've never had to deal with it. but that gives you something to go on
