U could try calcium gluconate. 23 percent solution u can get it at any farm store that sells stuff for cattle and with that stuff just inject it under the skin 1 and a half ccs or if she is eating u could try oyster shells

The things she is passing could be lash eggs, which are products of internal laying, and a sick reproductive system. A vet could confirm it for you, and help you to treat it with antibiotics. Is her lower abdomen swollen and tight like it might contain fluid? Here is some reading about lash eggs and internal laying:

It definitely isnt a lash egg
Gosh im struggling to find it
What is nutritional for the chicken


Yes but if u can get that calcium gluconate it will help her squeeze out whats in side of her and u can give her a warm bath with Epsom salt and gently message her abdomen area i would keep her inside in a dark quite place so she can focus
