    I'm a new hobby breeder and always a big worry wart. So,
    I don't want to jump to conclusions. Here's my story
    please tell me what you think. Hen has been dropping her
    big huge droppings since about thursday or friday
    morning. She has stayed in the nestbox the whole
    weekend. Her appetite is fine, she is drinking. Today she
    does have a swollen cloaka and has been in the nestbox
    again all day. So, It's been 3-4 days that she has spent
    inside the nest box. I'm getting worried because she is
    now swollen and you can see that there is an egg inside of
    her. Should I be concerned yet? I've called my vet but
    she isn't available today. None of the stores around here
    have liquid calcium. I'm boilig an egg now to give her.
    she also has a cuttle bone and mineral block. I got
    somewhat concerned earlier and put her in some warm
    water. Does she sound egg bound or just getting ready to
    lay?
