Vitamin D3 for egg bound hens

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
2 of my hens are egg bound at the same time. th.gif One is lila, this is her 5 or 6th time being egg bound. My other egg bound hen is Wattles, this is her first time egg bound. They both have been egg bound since yesterday and both have the same symyoms (sitting, swollen egg spot- i can feel the egg in both hens). I have soaked both of them. Yesyerday i gave both hens little peices of calcium pill yesterday. It did not seem to work, so can i give them both more calcium and a vitamin D3 pill- heres a pic of the pill to see the size...

I offers them to the egg bound hens they both didn't eat them. I dropped one and one of my healthy hens ate one, is that okay?
