Ask a Bird Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. You're through to Chris, a Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
hank you for your patience. Could you tell me if laying has been occurring normally? Any abdominal distension?
I see. I would be concerned about possible egg binding and/or the development of egg peritonitis. This can be a potentially very serious problem. Affected chickens struggle to lay, this progresses to yellow/green discharge from the vent and abdominal distension. Affected chickens also sometimes walk with more of a waddle.
The best plan here would be to get her examined by a vet familiar with chickens, see https://www.chickenvet.co.uk/find-a-vet for a Vet local to you who can examine her.
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
You're welcome. Best wishes.
