Hi everyone, this is my first time here.
A few weeks ago we bought an eglu go up and rescued three ex bats.
They all seemed to be doing fine and were eating, drinking and happily scratching about although I did notice that occasionally one of them would have a problem laying and I would find a yolk without a shell in the dropping tray.
It must have been intermittent though as some days there were three normal eggs there to be collected.
For the last two days one of the girls seems unwell. Yesterday she didn't want to come out of the coop and when I encouraged her to she just stood around looking miserable, she is drinking but I haven't seen her eat.
I have noticed today that she has a big bulge around her front neck and her comb is very floppy, almost covering one of her eyes. She has a bit of egg white residue around her vent. There was another yolk in the droppings tray this morning.
Does anyone have some advice? I have a local vet, I'm happy to take her but not sure how much they could do?
Thanks and best wishes
