    eggbound? Search this site for hens being eggbound and see appropriate action. By lubricating a finger and very gently investigating inside her vent, you will see if there;s an egg there or not. If there is, squirt olive oil up her vent and give her behind a warm soak. Should shift it. Good luck.
