My birds are finally beginning to lay and I don't know if this particular hen pecked red star is doing the laying but I noticed she is more henpecked than usual and was standing rather oddly. I checked her out to see if the pecking had led to blood and I saw a really nasty red blob coming out of her vent/rectum. is that normal in beginning layers? is she egg bound? what the heck is going on and will she get better on her own? what do I do-she is my favorite personality and so quiet-don't want to lose her!
