Hello- Our family lives in California, a bit outside of Sacramento. Last April we ventured into the world of backyard chickens. We have 5 girls total and have had a lot of fun raising them. One girl, a Speckeld Sussex, seems to ill right now. Not knowing much about chickens, we are quite concerned. I read a bit online (including byc site) and worry that she might be eggbound. She has been a bit lethargic for a day. Yesterday she mostly just stayed on the roost in the coop. This morning she spent extra time in the coop, then came out and sat backwards on the roost. It looks like her bottom might be a bit swollen and her tail was drooping. Following advice I found online, I just finished up a 20 minute warm water soak. She now seems to be napping in the box of straw I sat out for her. Any help would be greatly appreciated! The OttoCutting clan.
