Hi All I am new to the group and in need of advice. One of my hens has a broken egg inside her. After investigation I discovered it is actually in her large intestine! The oviduct is clear and healthy looking. But her intestine is a mess of shatter shell and egg membrane that just won't budge. I gave her a 20 minute soak in warm water to help her relax. Then I tried again to get the egg out. She was pretty calm and working with me to try to get it out. We worked for a while but I couldn't get a good hold on it and it was stuck. Then after a big push on her part I rechecked and it had slipped further down to where I couldn't really reach it. I really don't want to make things worse. Is there any chance she will pass it on her own? Has anyone seen this problem before? Thanks for your help.
