    I took my dear 1 ½ year old Monica[​IMG] (Cinnamon Queen) to the vet Saturday, Oct 31, 2015. She was not consistently laying for a week and had not laid an egg for maybe the last 4 days, and then I found a thin shell with puss in it. She had laid thin shelled before but never with puss, and she had never stopped laying for a long period of time. The doctor said she had salpingitis. [​IMG] He did not run any test he just felt on her. He had seen it before and treated it successfully. The doctor gave her Draxxin 2/10 of a cc, an injection, which I am not for sure (mg) how much that is. I had started giving her Fish Zole Metronidazole 250 mg 1 time a day; I treated her Friday morning and Saturday morning (before Saturday vet visit) with Metronidazole. I had also started her on supplements 24 hours before I took her to the doctor as well. A little bit of these once a day, milk thistle 175mg sprinkled on cottage cheese, VetRX poultry aid, Wild Harvest multi-drop high potency vitamin supplement, roasted dandelion root herbal tea, and 300 mg of calcium by Spring Valley. The vet said STOP the metronidazole [​IMG] as that amount is toxic for her. Also (metron) is gram positive and I believe he said most chicken diseases are gram negative so anyway (metron) does not treat salpingitis. The vet said I could continue and I will every couple of days with the supplements. Today Monday, November the 2, she laid an egg for the first time in about a week, it was still puss filled but I could see some yolk in it unlike the other puss filled egg. I am happy because I think the fact that she started laying again is a good sign. By the way I could not tell that she was sick by the way she was acting as she was eating and acting just fine. She did have a dirty bottom and when I felt on her, her abdomen was swelled. I didn’t think the swelling was that much, she is a big girl but the doctor certainly did. So glad I went to see the doc with her. I would have not known she was sick had I not found the puss filled egg. Also, he told me if a chicken doesn’t lay an egg consistently there is a problem. My visit cost $45.00. Exam was $25 and the injection was $20. It took maybe 30 minutes I had a lot of questions, he answered all of them and added some jokes about my supplements and he read paper work I had brought in. I have to take her back to the doctor again on Thursday, 5 days after the last injection for another injection, which I think I will only have to pay $20. Money well spent. [​IMG]

    I suppose I should update even thought it's late. I took her in to have her spayed, (she was eating and drinking but was swelled) and when he opened her up it was cancer, all over cancer. Since she was already asleep I had her put her down. That was demoralizing.
