My one year old cream legbar has been my best layer this spring. She has rarely, if ever missed a day in the last couple months. No supplemental light, they get a 16% grower with oyster shell on the side since I've also got some young chicks/pullets. Her shells aren't quite as hard as the others, but they've never been brittle. Last week I found a shell-less egg on the poop board where she roosts, she never missed laying a regular egg though so I wasn't convinced it was actually her. This morning she wouldn't come out of the coop, but everyone was acting weird. A few minutes later coyotes started up right behind us, loud and close, so I locked the dog back up and went out with a shovel and yelled at them. They went on for about 20 minutes, I'm guessing they must have a den close by. Wondering if the coyotes were around all night disturbing the girls. Anyway, the legbar also had a full squishy crop, feels like a balloon, it didn't appear to empty much overnight. It doesn't smell...yet. I decided to separate her to keep her from eating and when I picked her up a soft shelled egg fell out of her. I put her in the garage in a dark, quiet spot. It feels like there's another egg when I palpate her abdomen, but it doesn't feel hard. I gave her a calcium + D3 but her crop still isn't emptying. She hasn't gone poo in about 4 hours now. Any suggestions? At this point I feel that my options are to wait for her to pass what I think is an egg, or attempt to treat the crop issue. I'm hesitant to try a warm bath as she typically doesn't like to be handled, so it's obvious that she isn't feeling well right now.
