I lost a chicken over the holidays and when hubby examined it, it appears that she got egg bound. There was an old egg stuck in her vent. Someone else was keeping an eye on the farm and we set up all the animals as best we could before going to visit family for a few days. Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening to any more of my hens? None of them are laying yet (to my knowledge) so I'm thinking this was the dead hen's first egg attempt. Thank you.
