Hi there,
I would really appreciate some help figuring out what is going on in my flock of Khaki Campbells. Their bellies are distended around their cloacas and their egg production has dropped significantly. We had what we thought was probably a prolapse in one of them and this morning one of them could not walk much. She's walking some now but acting very strange. She's quiet and calm and doesn't seem to be in a lot of pain, but she stands in the corner of the coop with her neck outstretched and when she walks it's with her neck out. We realized they may have eaten some perlite because a bag was leaking where they forage and we didn't realize it. We culled the one with the prolapse because she was in such a massive amount of pain. I took the sick one I discovered this morning to the vet. I want to heal her and prevent this from happening again; I would love help diagnosing this. I'm thinking it's either the perlite or a nutrient deficiency. Thanks!
