Hi All. We have a 1 year old crested cream legbar hen named Flora. Flora started laying at 24 weeks and was laying beautiful large blue eggs. Suddenly, she started to be listless for a few days each week and we realized she was laying internally. Sometimes she would lay an egg but usually she either layed a soft shelled or no shelled egg or she would poop out egg whites with her stool. Lately, she has stopped laying altogether, which is fine with us as she seems to feel better now, but her comb is shrinking and she is loosing weight. Our birds are free range with free choice to Egglands Best layer feed (crumbles) and ample water. We know she eats as we see her do it. When we check t night, she has a full crop and poop under her roost. She is lively and active but very very thin. I was considering worming her but was not sure the best wormer to use. We will keep and love her for her entire lifetime but I am worried at how skinny she is.
