Egg bound success followed by leakage??
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
I think you are doing everything right! I was going to suggest the Preparation H and you are already doing it. Did the egg break in her as you were getting it out?
The drainage is clear? Not bloody or any other color? The poor dear!
Well I know,(only from reading and researching, no personal experience) that egg left in the chicken can cause infection and this is what can kill them.
If it was me this is what I would do:
1. Put her on an antibiotic for the recommended period of time.
2. Increase her calcium in take for a week.
3. Give extra vitamins and electrolytes in the water...can't hurt for the whole flock to have it for a while.
4. Continue to monitor.
5. Read this article: http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/egg-binding-symptoms-treatment-and-prevention
Great to hear! Thanks for the update!
