I posted earlier that I thought it was heat, but now I'm not so sure. My 1 y.o hen Ming Ming is very lethargic acting, doesn't move not really eating, drank a little but just not moving. I thought maybe mites, but not convinced. I checked her back side/ vent area and no tell tale signs, just a little dirty. No swelling , not red. But reason I though she might be egg bound is that her vent kept poking in and out. You can also tell that it was poking in and out when she was standing there alone. Movement in the feathers back there. Would that movement be normal if I was looking for mites in that area or what? Can someone please tell me the cliffnotes to "How to tell if you have an eggbound hen for Dummies" book. I know I need to get her to a bath, if so but not sure if she is. Please help. I dont' want to lose her. She's been acting like this all day.
