    Hey you guys! One of my hens have a broken egg inside her. I thinks she's gotten most of it out on her own. I will do anything and everything I can do in the morning (I didn't discover this until she was cooping herself and I had somewhere to be and couldn't keep people waiting [​IMG]) I have cleaned her feathers but I didn't have time to do anything else. I've separated her from the flock and have given her water and food. What can I do to save my hen?

    Maybe you could take her to a vet. Hope she will be okay.

    She's doing better... I flushed her vent after doing some reserch and that seemed to work pretty well. She's eating and drinking but still seems a little sick.
