Our bossiest hen, Anne Elliott, is not feeling well. She is not terrorizing her flock mates. Although she is still monopolizing the preferred nest box, much to the consternation of all the other girls, she is not laying eggs. She isn't particularly interested in food, and isn't pooping much.
Robb and I are worried that she might be egg-bound, and so we tried the treatment suggested for just about every chicken malady. A nice warm bath.
Anne Elliott was not impressed.
Today is our mostly-annual Egg-Stravaganza which means that Robb and I are busy all day. If Anne Elliott doesn't improve, we'll be seeking medical care.
Do any of our blog readers have advice on this subject? How does one do a hen examination, anyway?
