Hello! Two weeks ago I had a NHR hen pasted up. We cleaned her up and gave her DE in case of worms. This past Friday my husband found her unable to walk. I was away, so he brought her in the house in a dog crate for moist heat treatment. Her abdomen was hard, also. When I saw her Sunday she was still eating/drinking and somewhat perky, but not standing. I gave her a warm bath and cleaned her up further. There's been no change since she's been brought in the house. She continues to get pasted up because she only sits on her hay pile. She does eat mash and other foods, seems to be drinking fine. I mixed crushed Tums into her mash and she's eating some of those. I put on a glove today and absolutely felt a very large hard lump inside her. No kidding though, it's probably the size of a small baseball. I'm seriously concerned this hen won't be able to pass this egg (if it is absolutely an egg!) I wasn't able to feel the shell of the egg, I couldn't even put my finger in far enough to touch the shell. She isn't straining or trying to pass the egg that I can tell. I'm not sure what else I can do to help her, so I'm looking for suggestions. Hopefully someone can give me some advice. Thank you~!
