This is a follow up to my post yesterday. Thanks for the great information. I followed the instructions for the egg bound condition with no luck. She is not pooping, just very smelly runny watery grey matter. She is still alert and is trying to eat. I don't hold out much hope for her but plan to keep her comfortable and put her down if necessary. Can anyone tell me if the problems associated with the internal layer condition is contagious. If so, how should I treat my chicken coop and my other birds?
