Vet in Norfolk? in Chicken Clinic Posted August 11, 2013 Thanks for asking Egghead68. She's okay! She's laid 3 eggs since implanting (which I've had to throw away of course) but now seems to be stopping - her comb is certainly paler. We removed her stitch 10 days after she had the implant and that came out okay. I'm hoping that if she was in fact laying into the abdomen, we've caught it early enough. So hopefully a happy ending!
