I am a new chicken owner and am in desperate need of advice! I have three beautiful hens – a Barred Rock, Pippa, a Rhode Island Red, Ginger, and an Easter Egger, Paisley. All my girls are 7 months now and Pippa and Ginger have been laying faithfully for about a month now. But my poor Paisley has had nothing but problems! She started laying about a week after the others, but only laid softshell or no shell eggs. Then about every 4 days she started to lay normal eggs. Last week I found her on Thursday with a prolapsed vent and egg all over her vent feathers. I cleaned her up and placed her in quarantine, where she laid a normal egg on Friday. She was placed back with the other girls on Saturday. It has been 8 days since she laid an egg, and I am scared that she is egg bound. However, she is showing no typical signs of this. She is eating, walking and acting normal. She is not lethargic and her tail feathers are not down. She does often go into the coop in and lay in a nesting box, but lays no egg. Her waddles have turned white. So my question is – has anyone ever dealt with this before? Does she have some sort of deficiency that causes her to have this problem? I have researched this for days and found nothing helpful and I am in desperate need of answers!!! Thank you!
