    does it look like scrambled eggs? I have seen threads with pics of egg bound hens that have poop that has looked like that.

    That's a though call because I fed her a good teaspoon of yogurt. Before I brought her into the house this morning, I believe she dumped an egg on the lawn with a weak shell.

    Thank you and please continue the help!

    I just read your past threads. I think about all you can do is keep her on the yogurt and scrambled eggs. You might try offering her some oyster shell too, for the calcium (especially if she is laying thin shelled eggs), or you can just mix the eggshells into the scrambled eggs.

    You might also get more advice if you just keep posting to the same thread, instead of opening new ones (so people can get her background).

    Good luck!

    Yes, I should know better. I'm so sorry about that. I guess I'm starting to get desperate.
