Hello! We have a 3 year old Barred Rock in our mixed flock of 9 hens. She showed symptoms of several possible ailments, but we decided she was most likely egg bound. We treated her with calcium supplementation, Epsom salt baths, and mineral oil in her vent. We had just made the decision to cull her tonight if she continued declining further. Happily, she just passed an intact (though poopy) egg after 24 hours of "spa treatments", so we are very happy with her progress! My question is about her recovery from this ordeal, as there's not much out there. Does she have special needs, as far as nutrition or treatment to her overtaxed body, as she recovers? Should we expect another egg right behind the first? Any signs of further trouble we should look out for? Is this likely to recur since it happened to her once? How can we avoid it in the future? Are there telltale signs of infection or internal damage to look out for? I ask because she is having trouble standing, despite brightening up quite a bit since the egg passed. Maybe it's just too soon for physical improvement, though... less than an hour. Thanks for any experience you can share!!
