Hello everybody I've got a problem with our 26 week old Langshan. She hasn't started laying yet (none of our 8 chooks have, but then it is Winter here in New Zealand) and now we're quite worried about her. Here's why: On Thursday night, we went and checked the chicken house, to see if they were all in. Louise (the Langshan) was not on the perch like the other ones, but sitting on the ground. We didn't think much and put her up with the others. The next morning, they all came out as usual. But when it started raining and all the others went back into the house, Louise stayed behind, just sittin on the ground. We weren't at home, but Grandma somehow moved her to a sheltered spot, where she stayed the whole day. She just doesn't want to move, but looks otherwise normal. We thought she might be eggbound and after consulting the www, we took her inside, made her comfortable, gave her a warm bath and I even put a glove on with some KY to check and lube her vent. I couldn't feel an egg but she does open and close her vent as if she's trying to get something out... and so we're wondering if she is actually eggbound... and if not, what her problem might be! She's eating normally and she also poops normally. She just mostly sits on the ground and if I pick her up and move her a little bit, she has to put a lot of effort into walking a few steps and then she just sits down again. I'm not sure what to do and I'm hoping that one of you might have had a similar problem and can give me some advice. Thank you very much!
