    2 weeks ago I lost a hen. It was over a 2 day period. She would not come out of the coop, was laboring in her breathing, and kept her face in the corner. I tried to make her comfortable but she died the second night. This AM I am noticing what I think is another hen with the same symptoms. She wont leave the nest and is turned around with her head in the corner. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Eggbound? perhaps, someone can let us know what to look for. I know you should give them a warm bath, or soak if you will. Do a search you will find lots of stuff on it. Hope it gives you some direction. Good luck.
