    Desert Rooster El Gallo Del Desierto

    Sep 4, 2010
    Hesperia, Ca
    BREED: RIR

    AGE: 1yo

    WHAT HAS SHE BEEN EATING: Very little to nothing

    DAYS THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING?: Since May 3rd, 3 days now

    SYMPTOMS: She layed a soft egg that was ruptured, but the whole thing came out https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=497862 , she was doing fine, but now she just stands by herself, closes her eyes for a bit, wont eat, hasn't layed an egg.

    This morning i checked her before she ate, and i noticed that her crop was still half full, its not hard nor soft, but i do notice that she squats like she wants to poo but nothing comes out.
    I don't know what to do next or what to give her.
