I have a 9 month old Buckeye hen that is doing the squat walk. I brought her in the house and her vent seems enlarged (like the hole is larger and I can see tissue inside), but it is not red, swollen, nor protuding like a prolapse (maybe on its way though?). I am guessing that this means she is egg bound. While I have read about it often and the squat walk seems like a key symptom, I would rather get input from members who have experience. I'd rather ask and know that I was on the right track, then treat for something other than the actual problem. Thanks!!! edited to better explain her "squat walk". She will walk normal and then squat low and walk while squated. I have been using "search" but it seems some are egg bound and some are injuries, vitamin B deficiency, etc. FYI, our entire flock is on 20% protein Breeder pellets with occasional (not too often) scratch.
