So, today I have received my first eggs from my girls (only three eggs, I have five chickens), yesterday marked the six month date and to my surprise I found eggs this morning. Tonight when I was giving them snacks I noticed one of my girls were acting odd. She was first standing with her tail down, at first I thought maybe this is what happens before they lay, then I noticed she was walking funny. Kind of with a limp, I inspected the leg and found no break and it didn't seem to cause her any pain when I touched it. So I figured I'd leave her alone maybe she's having a rough time with her first egg. Before sun down I went back out to check on her and she was just the same. I looked up the symptoms to egg binding, her eyes are open and doesn't seem to have any other symptoms other than tail down and the odd walk. Any suggestions? Tomorrow I'm going to bring her in and let her sit in a warm bath. I'm thinking about keeping her inside in our large dog crate and allow her to relax in there, I may be being over cautious but I like my girls.. I also read that using a heating pad on low under a towel in the crate may help along with liquid calcium and oil to lubricate. Do you think I should give her another day on her own and not jump the gun yet? I picked her up and felt around her underside and didn't feel anything hard like a bound egg. Like I said this would be her first laying.
