I thought my chicken was egg bound and she still may be eggbound but I am not sure... I have soaked her twice and also inserted a finger in the vent but felt nothing there. I gave her calcium and also lubricated her vent area. She goes to the egg laying places and sits looking lethargic but there's no contractions on her backside like she's trying to lay an egg or anything. I currently am blowdrying her and noticed that her crop is very mushy. I know she's not eating and I thought her crop was supposed to be emptied every morning, and I don't have a lot of time to research this so came here hoping for help to help her. She's at least 8 yrs old. Thanks in advance for any suggestions or advice! Cheryl Edited to add: her breath smells like poo so now I"m sure she has a sour crop at least and not eggbound. I watched a Youtube video on how to massage the crop and hold the chicken upside down so she'd vomit up the fluid and that worked but then she died as she vomited. Even after she died fluid was coming out of her mouth. It's like she drowned in her own vomit. What did I do wrong? Does anyone know?
