    Hello,
    I have a bantum chicken who seems 'clogged'. I soaked her in warm baths twice, dried her off, used oil to lubricate her entry. A post said to find the egg, I was so afraid of hurting her, I asked my father to do it (this was after we tried to feel for the egg outside). He inserted 1 finger in search of the egg, but none was found. When he took out his finger, she was bleeding!! I soaked her again, she keeps straining, we have also tried to massage her. I don't know what else to do, please help!

    What makes you think she is clogged?

    She was very swollen with a descended stomach. Unfortunately she started to bleed, (maybe something ruptured?) and she died in the night.

    Oh my... I do not even know what that could be. I hope it is not something secondary to a communicable infection.
