Hello. I'm new here. I have 8 hens, all born on 4/29/15. Four of my hens are laying on a daily basis. I have one NH Red that has been occasionally walking off balance, specifically in the morning. She will walk sideways, backwards, then gets her balance and is fine and running all around. I read somewhere to give her baby vitamins, which I have been doing and it has helped. After I give them to her each morning, she is fine in about an hour. I also give her a few drops at night. Two weeks ago, she laid an egg with 2 yolks - it literally was the size of a goose egg. After she laid that egg, she was fine for a few days but then began walking funny again. Other than the walking funny in the morning, she is eating, gaining weight, and happy. I'm not certain she has laid another egg since I haven't seen her go in the nesting box. This has been going on for three weeks now. I've felt her tummy and the area in which she would lay an egg and I don't feel anything abnormal. I also checked her ears and do not see anything abnormal. Any thoughts? She is squatting for me - which is a sign of a layer.
