    Hi everyone, thank you for reading..

    I have a 6 month old white leghorn hen found droopy and lethargic day before yesterday. tummy felt hard and her back end was very dirty so thought she might be eggbound. Brought her in, soaked her in a warm bath, made sure her vent was clear. She was very thirsty and I got her to drink quite a bit of water.

    Been watching her since, now she's acting pretty normal, active, curious, etc. but she's pooping out some VERY stinky black poops and sounds like a gassy toddler. and still hasn't laid an egg.

    Any thoughts or words of wisdom would be lovely, thank you!
