OK I searched many threads, and learned a lot. I have a hen (2 Yrs) sluggish ,and walks slow and very wide, maybe duck like. Her belly feels way to full. OK I thought impacted or egg problems, and then I read about Ascities. I watched the lady drain her bird, I have insulin needles and a much larger one . I tried the small needle to "test the water" I did get a clear yellow fluid. However I poked her once and she bled a little, did I go to the wrong spot ,to high up her belly .... etc. Also the term water belly , hers seems tight not really squishy. Am I over analyzing or what?
