A castoff from the backyard egg industry, Scallops is suffering from a huge mass of rotting eggs stuck inside her (aka impacted oviduct). Because it's adhered to her oviduct, she cannot pass it, as more eggs pile up behind it, adding to the deadly mass.

Two years after being cast aside for the crime of not laying enough eggs, Scallops' life is in danger again. This time eggs have gotten stuck inside her oviduct, forming a blockage through which other eggs cannot pass.

For the last several days, Scallops has been sitting in her nest, trying vainly to push out this infected mass, periodically chirping in distress from the pain and effort. However, because the egg-mass is adhered to the oviduct itself, it cannot be pushed out no matter how hard her body tries.

Unfortunately, owing to a lack of funds, the surgery had to be canceled. We have tentatively rescheduled it for next week, as we scramble to raise the necessary funds,

You can help save Scallops

Donations to Scallops' surgery fund will not only help save her life, but they are also tax-deductible! And 100 percent of all donations will go straight to her veterinary costs.

Several hens at the sanctuary have been in a similar situation as Scallops' but are alive and happy today because they were able to have the necessary surgery. You can call in a donation for Scallops directly into her vet, Avian & Exotic Clinic of Monterey: 831 647 1147 or (if you'd like to circumvent the middleman) you can donate to her via Hen Harbor's paypal account:

Thank you for caring about Scallops in her time of need!
