keep the exposed tissue clean and moist with honey, anti-inflammatory ointment, etc. so it doesn't dry out.
It does not work that way, the exposed tissue is part of her oviduct/intestines - that needs to be kept moist with cream, honey, etc. You do not want it to dry out. You want that to be flexible so it can be pushed back in and her retain it.Yes, I’ve been syringing fluids in her, but I’m sure it’s not enough.
I tried to gently put it back the night I got the egg out, but she immediately pushed it out. Now too much of the tissue is dead, so I’m hoping it will dry up and fall of, like an umbilical cord.
I did offer her egg but she had no interest But that was two says ago. I haven’t been pushing the food because she has such a hard time eliminating, but I’m going to make sure she gets water today.
Her not eating or drinking at all is not a good sign. Have you considered giving antibiotics to fight infection?
