    eggchel, the first two links are broken. I think I found the new ones.

    Hi Densitywave,

    Thanks for the link help. The first two links are still working for me, although they dont seem to link directly to the desired pages. Your links are much better as they link directly to the desired information! Thanks so much.

    Unfortunately, I'm currently unable to edit my post because my computer commited some sort of su-E-cide and I'm stuck on an older iPad with a browser that is incompatable with the rich text editer on byc, leaving me with gobbledgook to wade thru.
    Unfortunately, Im 3000 miles away from my tech support (my kids).


    I'm not sure when I'll be able to change the links, but hopefully everyone will read down this far to get to your links.
    I also see that my post was edited earlier this year so it is possible that there was a problem with the links at that time, as well.


    Chel

    Been a while since I last posted. Having some sort of problem with our Golden Comet. She seems to have an egg stuck in her, like it won't come out. She hasn't been herself the last few days and definitely has not been laying. We lost one of our bantams this summer to the exact same thing, whatever it is. We don't want to lose this girl as she 's been through a lot. Any answers out there or advice?

    You should start a new thread of your own to receive more help. Here is a link for info on egg binding: http://www.avianweb.com/eggbinding.html

    Help!!!
    I have read other posts, but can't find the exact symptoms........
    My 5 mth barred rock(already laying) started out limping with one foot for about 2weeks......thought roost was too high, so we brought it down....now it's both legs and she can't walk at all. She was vaccinated as a newborn, so I don't think it could b meraks .
    Can someone PLEASE help????
    Today, not knowing for sure what to do, I soaked her legs in warm soapy water, then applied Vaseline.
    Now I notice another hen has a small limp.


    Please send me where I can get answers! Ty very much?.
