My Australorp has been laying soft shelled eggs for 2 months now. This morning I found this in the coop! What do you make of this???? It looks like stringy eggwhite mixed with droppings. Did an egg crack inside her? She is just standing there in drizzling rain, lethargically not making a move when I approach her. She closes her eyes standing up. I watched her for a while and saw her shiver on her back end. I am learning how to kill a chicken right now. So if anyone has a quick answer and treatment please let me know. I don't want her to suffer so I will do what is necessary. I will NOT pay to see the vet, heartless as it might seem. But my husband and I agree that the birds will be held for food purposes. Too bad I love this one. Please help. I'll stay online.
