    I have an Americano who is appears to be egg bound but when I picked her up it appeared to the white of an egg coming out of her behind. I have her sitting over warm water right now. Been on the water for the past hour I don't know what else to do please help.

    Is her vent area covered in poop and a whitish discharge? If yes,it could be vent gleet. Has she been exhibiting symptoms of egg binding?

    If you have rubber gloves you can lubricate a finger and gently insert it into the vent to probe around to look for any retained egg parts and clean them out.

    I'm so very sorry to hear this! Was she egg bound or did the egg break inside her? Poor baby. I'm so very sorry!

    I think it broke inside of her because when I picked her up something dripped out of her behind. It was a long drip.
