A question for of our chickens has eggs sticking to her behind, then they get dropped at various places in the coop and yard. Any ideas why this happens?

My Reply : When eggs get stuck internally two possible causes for that are lack of calcium (calcium is required for muscle retraction) or dehydration where the part which moves around the egg as it is laid is too dry and stuck to it preventing it from getting out. I don't know for sure but I would imagine that one of those two things could also be responsible when the egg is almost out but getting stuck to your girls backside.
