I don't have a chicken, but a quail I believe may be egg bound. I can't feel an egg by examining her outside, but she is acting like she is needing to push an egg out, but only pooping. I should say that she went broody, stopped laying and eating calcium. Her chicks are all grown up now and I believe her system has restarted (not laid an egg yet though). She's not that interested in eating, she drinks tons, her poops are normal but very small (obviously not eating much), but they're formed etc. She's fluffed up but semi active. Can an egg be stuck farther up to where you can't feel it externally by massaging a lightly? I gave her mealworms coated in powdered egg shell to amp up her calcium. Does this sound like egg binding?
