I have a little Rheinlander (I think) bantam, who seems to have trouble laying. She is NOT eggbound, and she always gets the egg out in the end. It's just that for a considerable while beforehand, she stands around with her tail hanging down and generally looking sad. She has done this for the last 2 eggs she has layed, but never before. She lays a big egg for her size, and the first ever egg she layed caused her to strain for a whole day, and ended up in prolapse. Thankfully she has never had any other problems until now. I suspect that his could be due to her losing condition due to her moulting. I was wondering if there was anything I could do to help make laying eggs a bit easier for her.
