Boomchick is about 5 years old, Auracauna (sp?), hasn't layed in over a year. She has been standing very upright for the last few days. Her vent is pretty messy, her bowel area feels very full. I don't think she's egg bound, as she hasn't been a layer for some time. She's eating fine. Could there be some sort of blockage? Should I try to help her evacuate her bowel with a gloved finger? She acts as if she wants to relieve herself but can't. Any ideas would be most appreciated. Thank you.
