So tonight I lost one of my girls to what I think is EYP. I've had at least 5 birds die from that now, so I am very curious and somewhat worried as to anything that may be causing it. I can't take my girls to the vet, partly cuz dad won't let me and partly cuz we can't afford it, but having seen it so many times I'm sure that that's what it is. The girl that died had either just started laying, or was just about to, so I'm thinking that she may have had an oviduct "malfunction". We had just recently started adding supplemental lighting in the coop as well. Does anyone have tips/advice for preventing it? Once they have it I don't want to let them suffer any more with surgery and stuff.
