Hello everyone, I have been reading this form for some time but this is my first post. I am new to chickens so this may be a common thing but I have searched the net and havent found anything even close to it. A few days ago we picked up four new laying hens. The farmer had them kept in very bad conditions and only fed them cracked corn so we expected some problems form them but to our surprise they all did really well in their new home. However two days ago one of them started acting funny. She got lethargic, her comb got pail, she started growling (yes growling like a dog) and didnt leave the floor of the coop, she also had a lot of poop around her tail feathers. We thought she might be egg-bound but in this small town we live in we couldnt find a vet to take her too. Tonight my wife brought her in the house and put her in a warm pan of water. After that we took the hen and put her under a heat lamp. About an hour later, she started breathing very heavy and contracting. She passed a few small runny poops and urinated and then we watched as her vent opened and she pushed out what looked like a small glob of foam. It was white and bumpy and had a three inch tail. It was rubbery, the consistency of an over-done hard-boiled egg. There was no yolk inside of it but when we squeezed it some yellowish liquid oozed out. I know what a soft-shelled egg is and I am pretty sure this wasnt it. I cannot even begin to imagine what this could have been, it looked like part of her insides. As of right now she seams to be doing a little better and this is the only one of the four hens that has had any problems. There is no hope at all of getting her to a vet until Monday when I have to make a five hour drive to the nearest animal hospital, so if anyone here can help it would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!! Additional Info: 1 year old Isa Brown Hen (Brown Egg Layer) Free-Range For the last week she has been fed Pullet layer feed, Oyster shells, Left over veggie scraps, bugs ect . Before that I was told she was on a diet of cracked corn, she was kept inside an enclosed 8x10 coop with about 40 other hens.
