I guess the more chickens you add, the more chicken drama you add! Saturday, Big Bear noticed that Ginger, one of my Rhode Island Reds, had part of an egg hanging from her rear end. Enter drama. I removed the rest of the egg and cleaned her up. She seemed otherwise ok.
Next day though, I noticed she was discharging a fluid. Rest of egg maybe???
I thought maybe egg bound??? Not sure. So, I researched and decided to try cleaning her up and soaking her bum in warm water.
I was able to soak her a good bit. I separated her and put her in the chicken nursery for the night. I know I did all I could for her. But in the end, my skills weren't enough to save her. She was gone by morning.
RIP Ginger...you lived a good chicken life and we will miss you!
