Is my chicken egg bound?

Postby alicia » Fri Jul 22, 2011 5:05 pm

This afternoon i let my chickens out of their coop and one is
not a happy girl, she keeps sitting down and making a weird
whingy noise.
She hasn't been laying lately however i did find one egg which looks
like one she lays, not sure how old it is since my partner has been doing the
daily care this past week and prob hasn't checked for eggs.
The coop is cleaned out everyweekend though so it was definately laid this
week sometime.

ok she's not egg bound (been to the vet) temperature seems high and the noise she's making is concerning the vet.
Although not actually sure whats wrong.
So on oral antibiotics and wait and see. Have her inside the house to keep her nice and warm.

When we got home she ate and did a couple of clucks which was nice to hear.

Yeah she had the vet a bit stumped too, and she also owns chickens.
She has stopped making the noise today, although not gutsing down her
food as normal, and is walking around a little more so fingers crossed
whatever it is gets cleared up with the help of the antibiotics.
