Non Surgical Egg Bound Method

  1. Kevin565
    This article will describe a Non Surgical method for fixing egg bound hens. Please note that this may not work for all cases especially late stage cases.





    1. Find a large container to fill with water. Storage bins make excellent containers for this.
    2. Fill the container at least half way full with warm water. Cold Water will not be effective.
    3. Now soak the hen in the bath water for at Least 20 minutes.
    4. After your hen is done soaking towel dry her off
    5. Give her a quiet area by herself that she can attempt to pass the egg

    I also find that gently massaging in one direction (out lol) helps too... not too much, just 5-7 strokes, always in one direction.
