Have Bird Questions? Ask a Bird Specialist.
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years and I will try to assist you. Please start by crushing up some Rolaids and see if you can get her to eat them. If she does not take them willingly, you can put in a little fruit baby food. This is important because the calcium will help start the contractions to help get the egg passed.
If this does not work the next step is soak her lower half in warm water. It is easiest to bring the bird inside the house and fill up your kitchen sink with warm water. Place her into the warm water and soak her bottom. After the soak dry her and allow her to relax with some food and water hopefull she will pass the egg. If this does not work, then she will have to see an ER Vet.
How is the hen? Did she pass the egg? Please update me.
You will need to open the chicken's beak and get the calcium in, this is very important to help her You can also take some Personal lubricant on a gloved hand and try and work around the egg to help ease it out, but this is a last resort. The calcium will start the contractions and that is what we need right now.Try another warm soak as well.
