Hi all! I have two porcelain d'uccles who are about a year and a half old. Recently (on Tuesday) one of them began squatting every few minutes and straining. I let it ride for a day but she kept doing it, so I decided to give her a warm bath in case she was trying to pass an egg Wednesday night. All this while she has been behaving normally: eating, drinking, talking, and running around her cage. Other than the squatting, nothing has changed in her behavior. She is relieving herself, although her droppings have been more runny than usual. On Wednesday night, one of the hens laid an egg. I'm not sure which, although I suspect it might be the healthy one. Thursday my squatting hen appeared to be acting normally. However today she is squatting more than ever. I looked at her vent and she had some wet droppings stuck there. Maybe she is sick and not egg bound? Please help, I don't know what she has and I am worried she is egg bound because she could die.
