Sapphire gem hen there was what looked like an egg but no shell in the coop behind her and then I saw this. What do I do I am new at this?
Thank you so much for your reply. She had several small thin poops and then that eventually passed.I believe that is a ripped shelless egg. Look very carefully and make sure that there is no part of it up into her vent (make 100% sure it isn't an organ) and you can probably lightly lift it to see if it will fall out easily.
Put the pieces together to see if it is an egg.
If the odd eggs persist, or one breaks inside her vent, it might not hurt to give a round of amoxicillin. It is available sometimes in feed stores as Fish Mox or online as Aqua-mox:
Dosga epis 125-250 mg twice a day given orally for 7-10 days.
