Greetings All, A newbedo here and new to chickens and am a little concerned about one of our birds. My daughter and I have 3 Rhode Island Reds. They are about laying age but no eggs yet. My question is do chickens ever have trouble passing eggs and if so, is this a veterinary emergency? One of our birds (Pecky) is waddling around slowly like a toddler with a load in their pants. She sits with her eyes closed and squats a lot which I am assuming is her effort to pass her first egg. This has been going on for about two days. Is she OK? If I am being silly, please feel free to all have a good laugh at my expense.
