Also it is good to keep in a dark cage or room for 16 hours every night to stop laying--that should reduce the hours she can eat, so that may be the only thing that is needed to stop laying.

OK thanks, I'll put some on in the morning. I think she could use something to reduce swelling, and maybe that will also help it stay in, too. Hopefully it stays all night! I will also try to reduce the amount of light she is exposed to.
Thanks for all your help!

Great news. Yes she probably needs to be with the others now. Keep an eye on her to make sure it has not popped back out, because they will peck her. If she lays an egg, it may come out again.

Still in this morning, but she's having a little bit of trouble going to the bathroom. Should I keep giving her epsom salt baths for a few days?
