Yesterday, we saved 5 chickens from a man who was going to kill them due to "not laying" - although we did get 3 eggs out of them today! However, one of the girls has a bulge near her vent which is very red and sore, it also seems to be contracting constantly. We have felt around and can feel a lump in this buldge that we believe could possibly be an egg. We were wondering if this meant that she is egg bound or is this another type of problem like a tumour or something? I'm sorry for the poor quality of the picture, it was dark out at the time! Any information would be great! We would love to get her back to full health and are willing to try anything to put her out of her pain!!
