    I have a 3 year old Rhode Island Red hen who is very apparently ailing from something. She is hunched over in a corner, and abdomen seems seems very full. Thought she might be egg bound, but not so sure. She has diarrhea and is eating and drinking ok. What can I do for her? Already gave her a warm soak and massage, mineral oil "enema", and could not feel an egg.

    Without having enough information,, it could sound like egg peritonitis (internal laying) SpeckledHen is extremely knowledgeable about it. [​IMG]
