    hello,ive been dealing with a serama hen thats very swollen.i thought she was eggbound but ive been treating her for a 2 weeks.no egg,no better,no worse.shes eating and drinking fine.shes acting a bit lazy but that might be cause shes stuck in a cage by herself.anyone have any idea why this hen is swollen?

    Any update on your hen? What exactly do you mean by swollen?

    Look up posts by me on "Drained a Hen's Abdomen" and "RIP Maxie". That may be what you're dealing with, egg peritonitis/internal laying.
