HELP!!! My WHITE ROCK hen, Lucy, has been acting odd for the past week. She's usually all over our property ranging with a hop in her step. She's been acting real still and lethargic. She looks "loopy" -- like she's in a stupor. About 10 days ago I noticed she had a busted egg on her rear (where the eggshell is so thin that it busts on it's way out and gets her backside all nasty messy and mud/dirt adheres, etc.). Over the days I noticed it getting smaller and smaller so I figured it was cleaning up. But today, since she's been acting so weird, I decided I was going to make sure it wasn't infected. So I picked her up, took her inside in the tub, and with a warm water sprayer I used some soap to get the clump off her butt and thoroughly clean her feathers. I examined her cleoca (however you spell the egg exit hole) and it looks all rosy and healthy. But back to my picking her up.....when I picked her up she regurgitated what seemed to be water and I could hear water stuck in her throat as if I had squeezed water from her craw to her throat and I KNOW I didn't handle her roughly as I know how to pamper my girls (by PAMPER, I don't mean that I put them in those crazy chicken DIAPERS! lol!) Her craw seemed HUGE and swollen and so I felt it and it was smushy and FULL of fluid as if she'd drank a quart of water. She's not broody right now. Not only do I care about Lucy, but I NEEDED to capitalize on her easy-to-evoke-with-a-few-ungathered-eggs broodiness in the coming weeks as I have my McMurray Hatchery order arriving in early May. I was going to let her go broody in mid / late April and them slip the baby chicks under her during the night --- to satisfy her desire to mother (she's a virgin) and my need to have my chicks taken care of for free --- a quid pro quo situation for sure. This is threatening the adoption plans! What is UP with her liquid-y craw? What is this? What can I do to help her?
