Is it possible to lay an egg AND lay internally?
Okay, so Nancy has been a bit off colour recently in that she is quieter (missing Molly and Lily?) and not laying as often along with some soft shell eggs.
She never lays every day so we weren't too concerned at first but one morning she was very quiet, wouldn't eat or drink and stood in a corner.
We decided to take her to see our lovely vet but before we went she laid a good egg and was as bright as a button again and was eating and drinking again - cancelled visit to vet but he sent us some Optishell to put in drinking water and see how she is after 2 weeks.
She laid again yesterday but today is quiet again and we noticed her poo was a white (not yellow) blob and very small. Is it possible for a hen to lay eggs AND have EYP? We are concerned that she's getting EYP but the egg laying is making us puzzled.
