My hen is acting, happy, and normal. She runs up to the fence when I come out and digs around with her sisters all day. She's about 1 1/2 years old. I wouldn't suspect anything was wrong with her, but she's gone in the nesting box 2 times in the past 3 days and hasn't layed. 1 month ago she pooped egg white, and acted sick, but the vet gave her a shot and I took her inside and she got better and continued laying. In the mornings she still occasionally acts a little slow, but she's pretty normal the rest of the day. It's been brought to my attention that she may have internal laying. I'm new to the whole chicken thing so I have some questions about internal laying: Can they lay eggs, or is that the problem? How can I prolong her life if that was the problem? I've heard about people who kept them alive for months by keeping them warm. Would that work? Do they start actually acting sick when they are nearing their death from internal laying? Does this sound like internal laying? Also, I felt her belly and I don't think I feel any eggs. I also felt her crop in the morning and it felt like my other 3 girls.
