I have a RSL hen that cannot seem to pass the egg through the vent. She was injured a week or so ago by the other hens. She is in a small pen now. She layed an egg 2 days ago with no problem. I have had a look and a feel and the egg does not appear any larger than her usual eggs.
She is doing fine this morning. I knew I could count on you guys. I figured even if you didn't know what to do you'd give me moral support. LOL I lost a hen like that a couple weeks ago. I'll post a pic of the aftermath so if you are squeamish, look away. I don't take such pics or do necropsies to be ghoulish or morbid but rather to learn so I can be a better chicken person.
Zz Don't you know they are so sincere with, "I am so sorry for your inconvenience"? We know they are not sorry. :) They probably love it. My phone company is the worst, worst worst. Put you on hold for an hour then say "so sorry for the inconvenience" yeah sure you are.
She is doing fine. Laying early every morning with no further episodes. But I have to keep her seperated because she is so eaten up. Now she is picking at it herself. I sprayed it with some aluminum spray.
