Pearl is a leg horn (really a California white) and is about 1.5 years old. Has never had a major molt and has been laying fine for some time, over a year. This fall when it started getting cold she started to lay about every other day. Some of my other hens did too, so I didnt think much about it. Plus we have a light that comes on at 5am to help with laying. I noticed in the last two weeks she as started to lay about every two days now. However today another chicken of mine came running out of the coop caring pearls broken egg in her beak. And if i think about it the last time she layed an egg was probably thursday or friday and now here we are on monday. I believe her overall behavior seems normal, eating drinking pooping with out issue. I cleaned of the shelf under there perch just to monitor how much she poops over night. they also have grit and oyster shells dispersed in their grain hopper. SO here is my question. What is going on with her? How serious is this? I have never had any issues like this in the past, but this is only my second year with chickens. I read a pervious thread saying to flush her vent with vinegar and water. I will need to run to the store to get some. Is this a death sentence for her? how can I help her? Can this just happen every now and again? Does she have cooked egg inside her now? Just worried, having not dealt with this ever. Any advice/guidance would be great! Thank you!!!
