I posted the original problem. My hens didn't like to be held either so I put on gardening gloves and caught her. I used them every time I picked her up. I gave her a warm, not hot, bath to soak her bottom. I kept her in a box in my bathroom with a towel draped over the top. I fed her scrambled eggs. No layer mash or corn and as little light as possible. It will stimulate egg production. I had some surgical gloves that I wore while she was in the bath and would clean the poo off her feathers and try to untwist it a little bit. The warm water helped with lubrication and helped her relax. When the egg finally came out, I had no idea and was preparing a bath for her and was ready to cut a slice in the vent to get it. It had been a week. She laid another egg that day, probably backed up. I cleaned her again and put honey on the vent. The honey draws the vent back in and is good against infection. I kept her in for another week before I put back in the coop. She is a trooper and still one of my best producers. Nice large eggs. Good luck. It's scary.

We had a stuck egg today, she was really in pain and not eating. Put her in warm bath and it worked, first thing she did was poo a lot in the tub, we kept her warm and dark until she dried and placed her back in the coop and she laid an egg in about 45 min. My daughter who is 13 did this all on her own with me on the phone at work. She heard her when she got off the bus and was really scared. These are our first chickens and they have only been laying for about 3 weeks, this chicken had laid an egg every day since starting, I wonder why this one got stuck?
