    Early fall I had a hen that showed almost all symptoms of being egg bound. She made it through but hasn't laid another egg since. How long will this last or will she lay any more? She's a Polish and is one of my favorite chickens.

    How cold has it been there? Did she begin molting shortly before or after becoming egg bound? I have hens that molted last fall that have not started laying again yet... she should start up this spring.

    She was done molting. She showed symptoms ( Squatting, walking funny, pumping, etc) of being egg bound, recovered but no eggs since.
