    I have a hen who has a hard abdomen and diaherrea. She eats her favorite food, but not her regular crumbles. We've currently got steaming water under her with covers over her in case she egg bound. She's very young though, not even a year old yet. Her comb is kinda of brownish-yellow. She wasn't moving very fast the last couple days. Is there anything else it could be? Anything else we could do for her?

    I have the same problem with my hen and searched hard abdomen up in the search bar. there are a lot of posts about it so you may want to read those for help. I've given mine a warm bath and sugar water with a little olive oil (dunno if that part was smart but i'm flying blind). shes resting now...
    good luck with your girl.
