Could it be Eggbound?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

If our hen is eggbound could we be able to see, touch or feel it between the pubic bones? or would it be a deeper inspection?

Can you put on a glove and insert  a lubricated finger about an inch and see if you feel and egg?

Here are links to signs, symptoms and how to treat.
