    I've heard egg bound hens may need calcium and to give them tums. Maybe wrap some broken up pieces in hotdogs chunks or meat or something she will readily eat. Good luck!!

    Can you feel the egg? If so you could massage the egg very gentle and see if it helps. I've done it before and work the egg out. Just don't put her under any stress.
