1st disclosure: New Hen Mom. I have inherited 13 hens and recently just moved them to my property. This has been a loud construction process of which the hens have been partially exposed to. So, I have stressed them out somewhat. During the first week I wasn't really getting eggs, which I expected and read a lot about...and that's normal. The second week I started getting about 5 eggs a day. Now that I'm in the 3rd week I'm getting pretty much 9 eggs a day, throughout the early morning and afternoon. I have a RR what has been acting sick for the past week. I didn't really think much of it at first because she was eating somewhat and acting okay. During this past week however, I have had to deal with one of my buff's with poopy vent, poor thing. I have noticed that my RR now has poop around her vent. I'm thinking I have to give them some sort of treatment for their water and have been told vinegar, water supplements would be helpful..but I make sure the water is clean and as little exposure to fecal matter as humanly possible. I'm pretty clean anyway so I keep an eye on that. So, my hen has been sick and she really doesn't move around a lot. If I put scratch right in front of her she will eat but makes no effort to free range or move around. Also, at the end of last week I noticed I had a white banded egg. It was a normal brown egg with a very large circular spot that had a very dark center. I have done a lot of research on this and from what I can see it's when two each form in the calcification process that are touching. So, my next question now that I have put these two issues together...is my Red egg bound? If so how do I know? What do I need to check? Slightly stressing about this now and can't sleep. She's such a good hen and has normally been laying but with her sick I can't tell if she is or is not. Suggestions? I'm going to go check her out this morning again and see if I can feel any hard spots in her abdomen....but my fear is that I do find something...Yikes...yes, I have fear of the unknown. I read an article that I can check her vent with a gloved finger (hand) but what does that mean? Oh boy....I'm a bit lost her and just feel really bad for my girl. Direction and assistance with resources would be greatly appreciated.
