    She keeps making a squeeking noise while she is trying to poo. She is obviously in discomfort. I don't know what to do to help. Only Liquid comes out, its almost like there is poo stuck in her. Thanks for any help you can give.

    I don't know what could be wrong with her- but hopefully this bumps you up so that one of the pros sees it

    good luck !

    Well, If anyone else has this prob, because she had just had her chicks hatch yesterday, she was not getting off the nest enough. So, after all day of her squealing on the nest, having to poo, I took her off and made her walk. I think she tore her bottom pushing out a huge round ball sized turd, then a bunch more loose stuff. But she obviously felt much better.

    There always seems to be something happening in the barnyard!
