Hi all, My 1.5 year old EE who has been laying thin-shelled eggs (but otherwise in excellent health) started walking oddly, tail pumping about a week and a half ago. Noticed it right away, took her inside and gave her an epsom soak + 2tsp olive oil and she popped out a small rubber egg. had some coagulated white stuff on top of it but DEFINITELY no hard puss or yellow anything. opening it up, I found egg white albumen with no yolk. Had her in the hospital crate all night and next morning she wanted OUT!!!! She seemed in excellent health. Tail up, bright comb and laid a couple of good looking eggs. Today she did it again. She was chipper and active this morning and early afternoon her tail went down, she sat in a corner kind of fluffed up and looked... off. I repeated the soak/oil treatment and out popped a much smaller plug looking like thing that again, is pure white albeit coagulated. What gives??? Is this Salpingitis or some gum up in the works due to the shorter days? I'm in southern California so it's still fairly warm compared to other places. It's been dipping into the low 50's at night, but that's no big deal for a flock of 7 chickens. Additionally, I have an Australorp (same age 1.5 years old) who is stopped laying and looking intermittently "off". She wanders off by herself more often than is normal for her and lays down more than she used to. Then sometimes she looks fine. With the EEs issues I'm concerned it's hit my Australorp as well. I'm running a fecal on her now. I'm hoping that it's just because we're getting into really short days now but it's hard for me to tell what's winter and what's a problem. Any ideas on what it is I'm dealing with???
