    I have a chicken that is walking with her butt to the ground. She seems like she is trying to lay and egg. She is not able to walk very well but does roost at night. I went to look at her and she had small yellow bugs crawling around the vent area. Could someone tell me what might be wrong with her and what the little yellow bug might be? Thank you.

    I think she is egg bound. Sadly, i don't think she is going to make it. [​IMG] Thank you for your help.[​IMG]
