Hatty the Hen was recently egg bound. Unfortunately I had been out all day and when I returned and went to put the poultry away Hatty was not behaving normally. It looked like she was repeatedly trying to go to the toilet. As luck would have it my father-in-law was around and I asked for his assistance. He went to pick Hatty up and with that an egg popped out. The problem had been that the egg shell was not hard and this was making it difficult for Hatty to pass the egg. I am pleased to say that Hatty recovered immediately and is now back to laying her eggs as usual, although she has just moved her nest site and it is taking some finding! I’ll let you know when I have located it.
