I have a Khaki Campbell, 1-2 yrs old that I just acquired. She was acting egg bound so I soaked her fanny in warm water, lubed her up in the vent with vaseline. I could feel the egg at that time. It felt soft. I did not manipulate it or try to work it out. I put her in a bunny cage with water and food and warmth with a towel over her. It's been 11 hours and no egg. I lubed her again, but I could no longer feel the egg. there was not residue from the egg on my finger either. Could she have reabsorbed it that quickly or is there another concern I should have? She is eating, drinking and sitting normally at this time. Thanks!

I would give her 50 mg calcium two or three times a day for a few days as well as some time in a tub of lukewarm water.
I crush calcium citrate tablets and sprinkle it on a treat, like thawed peas, but you can use liquid calcium gluconate also.
Please keep us posted.
