    We have a 6 month old Silver Sebright bantam that had a really hard time laying an egg this morning. My fiance' said they almost fell over backwards she was standing up so high and hard as she pushed. This evening she can't stand and is not doign well. Any suggestions?!?!?!?!
    Thanks!

    Giver her a nice warm bath, that can help them relax and pass the egg.
