    Freshly Laid Egg
  1. Poorly hen - breathing laboured

    Thank you for your help and replies. As I said we have bathed her tonight and she is currently in hen hospital. Poor Ivory - we will see how she is in the morning and go from there I think. I now know what to look out for.
  2. Poorly hen - breathing laboured

    What is egg peritonitis? Yes she has been waddling since Monday Not really sure what breed she is - Sussex?
  3. Poorly hen - breathing laboured

    We have bathed her and checked her vent - can't feel anything but her abdomen is very bloated. She is in hen hospital overnight now.
  4. Poorly hen - breathing laboured

    I think it was about 2 weeks ago that she laid last - she has always been a really good layer. I have seen that if you bath them it helps things move? I might try that in the morning. We have a dog crate that I will put her in. Thanks for your reply
  5. Good evening, My hen Ivory (I think about 2 years young) hasn't laid for a good couple of weeks now. She has a very messy bum. Her crop feels fine I think but there is a bit on her neck which she keeps pecking at. I picked her up and when I put her down it was like she had no support in her legs. Her breathing also seems laboured. I have separated her from the other girls but not sure what to do!! Please help Thank you

  7. Injured girlie - fox attack?

    Molly is healing nicely. The girls have all been living together for the last 12 months - I hope it wasn't one of the others. I cannot see any blood on anyone else.
  8. Injured girlie - fox attack?

    Our little girl Molly was attacked tonight. We have cleaned the wounds and put her back to bed. We put them in the pen and when we went to lock the hutches it seems something still got her. We have 8 girls all together and the others are fine. Molly is our friendliest - is this a fox? Very worried mother hen 😢
