Something we don’t often think about is the miracle of how chicken eggs are formed. We pretty much tend to take it for granted that we’re going to have some eggs in the coop and most folks don’t tend to think beyond that. Here is a great, short little video explaining how eggs are formed. This can also help explain why some internal parasites can get inside eggs as well!
If you’ve ever had a hen that got sick or died due to being egg-bound this video might help you understand how that could happen a little better. Since I brought up that topic one tip that’s worked for me before with an egg-bound hen was soaking her in warm water for a few minutes. This tip is best used on a warm day so your hen doesn’t get too cold.
