I posted yesterday about egg bound, and have been doing a lot of reading on these threads about it, but I still don't know which one my lady is suffering with. All the symptoms I am reading could be the same. here is what is happening.... 1. She can & will drink fine. (I have started adding ACV to H2O) 2. She walks like a penguin, very slow & uncomfortable. 3. After a few steps she will stop & plop down to rest (staying there for hrs) 4. She has not go to the hen house to lay (that I have observed) 5. Roosting at night on the bottom step of ladder and won't go into house (almost too much effort to fly & jump up there) 6. She eats fine (but will do so mostly sitting) & will come get the food, not just brought to her. 7. She has a swollen neck fills full, lots of massage and it seemed to go down some, but this morning it's hard again. 8. We did the whole "glove check" & hubby thought he felt an egg, but really what do we have to compare it to? 9. She is pooping fine and doesn't seemed labored, not watery or anything 10. From time to time her breathing is labored, open mouth & tounge sticks out. 11. In the beginning she seemed rstless, but now she is past the point of restless, but now just will let you pick her up & waits for the massage. & just sits all day being still. All these symptoms seem equal to each condition, so how would I know if she has a crop issue or a egg boung issue? I plan to soak some bread in olive oil & contuine with the ACV water. How can I know for sure if I put her in a warm dark place if she is egg bound, because won't the lack of light cause her not to lay? HELP me I am confused and she is in so much pain.
