Yesterday I noticed that my Jersey Giant had runny discharge from her backend, and when I checked her a few hours later she was obviously eggbound. We put her in our warm basement with a heating pad under some straw and applied a warm washcloth to her bottom. After an hour (this was around 9 pm) she passed her egg. When I went to get her this morning, there was another egg beside the first one -- but it didn't have a shell. It was completely intact and looked like somebody just cracked an egg into a frying pan. Is it possible that that egg formed without a shell, or do I need to be concerned that she has a broken shell inside of her? I would think if that egg passed through a broken shell that it would be all messed up, but it looked perfect. Today she was walking around and eating fine, but I did notice her acting broody on a nest ( a few of my other hens are broody right now too), and at evening time she went up to roost before everyone else did. She isn't straining like she was last night, but she usually doesn't lay around as much. I'm sure she's probably tired from the stress of yesterday, but I hope to put my mind at ease about her situation. She seemed fine on the roost, although her tail feathers were a little quivery. I'll probably end up putting her in the basement again tonight, but I'd really like to hear some feedback. Thanks . . . Never had a hen get egg bound before, so I'm really hoping I caught it in time and saved her.
