Have Bird Questions? Ask a Bird Specialist.
Hi this is Dr. Hill. Can you feel an egg above her cloaca? I would not use mineral oil. I would soak her cloaca/vent in warm water. If she is not eating and is uncomfortable, she should be taken to a local veterinarian. They may be able to help her pass the egg (if she is egg bound). Some times the egg has to be manually removed after ovocentesis. Hope this helps! Love my chickens.
Hi Steph. Please let me know how your RIR is doing.
Just checking in to see if she passed an egg.
