    I have an egg bound chicken and from a lot of posts that I've read, giving antibiotics is a good idea. Where do I get them?

    Quote:Eggbound means an egg is stuck, and having a problem coming out. May be broken, or wedged, or some other problem. It does not mean they are about to lay an egg. If she would lay the egg, that would be a good thing.
