Hi, I noticed my smallest silkie seemed to be in distress tonight. She had been sitting in her nesting box for several hours, I checked her earlier this afternoon and she was in the box and got puffy when I opened the hatch. When I went to tuck them in for the night I did not see her sitting on the roost with my other hens. She is always in the middle of them at night so I knew something was up. I checked the nesting boxes and she was still in the same spot that she had been before. She again was very puffy but seemed lethergic and in distress. Pushing her head forward a bit. I gently picked her up and brought her in the house. I checked around her vent but honestly wasn't sure what I was feeling for. It did seem that her vent was pulsating/pushing. I soaked her in some warm water for about 15 minutes and then dried her off and again massage around her vent. I made her a nice bed in a secure carrier, as soon as I put her in the carrier she passed a LARGE poop. Not lose at all, pretty firm. I'm keeping her in the house tonight so I can keep an eye on her. Right now she's in the carrier and is pretty much just sitting there. Her comb and wattles are good red color, she isn't eating or drinking at the moment but she was yesterday. She was active yesterday and layed a egg fine. There was an egg in the box with her tonight but all of my hens lay in the same box (even though they have 4) so I don't know if it was hers or not. Does this sound like egg bound? Could she just be broody and I'm overreacting? What else should I do? Check? Thanks for your help!
