I think I made a mistake. I have a black jap hen that is approx. 6 months old. Yesterday she sat on the nest all day. She showed no sign of being broody. Late in the afternoon I removed her and could see the tip of the egg in her vent so I placed her back on the nest. She was still in the nest when I went to lock up 7 last night. I felt and could feel the egg just inside her vent and it felt huge! I put her back on the nest and she was still there this morning and she still had not laid the egg it was still just inside the vent. By the way I think this is her first egg. So, I thought I would help. I tried to work the egg out by pressing on the back of the egg from the outside and tried to force it out as gently as I could. Then suddenly I felt the egg break. I think this egg was just too big for her to pass. Is there anything I should do or just hope for the best?
