    If there are no injuries and the blood isn't dripping from her vent, where's it dripping from? There must be a source.

    I would clean any bloody area with a betadine wash and try and see where the blood is coming from - a wound or something. Clean and apply Neosporin. In the meantime, keep her as quiet as possible so she can recover from the shock.

    Best of luck.

    well upon further examination..it is from her vent and i found a second, much larger egg by the smaller one she also laid.
    i feel so bad for her [​IMG]
    im wondering if it is because she is a lot smaller than she should be and maybe egg laying is hurting her [​IMG]
