I appears that I have an internally laying hen. I have been reading all the posts and I realize there is little hope for Natalie. When I first joined BYC, everyone (including me) was following a post about someone who rescued several chickens, one with a bloated abdomen. She and her husband performed kitchen table surgery on the poor thing and was successful. They included several pictures and descriptions of what they did. I wanted to see that again while I am still able to make decisions. Does anyone remember this or who it was or was it you? I have a feeling that I have to decide what to do soon. Thank you Here is Natalie in snow.
