This is also posted in the Egg Behaviors forum.....I have a very sick chicken, not sure what's going on with her.....she is not well, is laying broken eggs...has one possibly broken inside of her? We have had 2 tornados touch down @ our home on Friday night.....so I have not been able to pay as much attention to them as I had been.....I need some help and advice...pic is posted as to what she looks like......she is not free ranging with her sisters, just stands around and is trying to pull all these feathers out....never had to deal with this before. Help is much needed and appreciated. :(
Her vent is red and swollen and tender looking as well.....

I can not help with your chicken, I am sorry but will be praying that someone answers quickly. But I wanted to say that I have been praying for all of the tornado victims.
