    Just checking on this.. Have a hen who has had symptoms of being egg bound, but at the same time, symptoms of Marek's disease..
    She's been weak, off balance.. But then, she was leaking large amounts of liquid (some looked like egg white/egg drop soup),
    pumping her tail, and her vent was swollen and palpitating.

    ......Symptoms of Marek's Disease? I hope not!!

    Sounds to me like she is egg bound and broke the egg inside herself.. Do a search on Egg Bound and you will gets lots of info....
