I have a egg bound hen .i soaked her with warm water and Epsimons salts what else do I?
Can you feel the egg inside her abdomen?
Question, How you know she is egg bound? Signs/symptoms??
This link might be more of a help...
She has all the symptoms of egg bound.the egg is by her vent
Okay, first thing's first... one of my hens had an egg impaction, just to encourage you that she did pass the egg, and survived. Although sometimes it might not always be the case. Warm, Epsom salt baths are great, if done 2-3 times a day. To bring the calcium level up, maybe some scrambled eggs with 1/2 tums, crushed. Have you heard of Poultry Nutri-Drench? If not, well, they may sell it at your local feed store. It is a great way to boost your hen's immune system. Is she still drinking and eating okay?
She is not drink or eating to much.i will put Vaseline by her vent
If she's not drinking or eating on her own, you can also try dissolving abut of a calcium tablet in some water and giving it to her with a syringe. Definitely do some warm soaks. If the soaking and calcium doesn't work, you can also try putting some warm oil in her vent and massage very gently.
I can see a little part of the egg.is that a good sign?
I can see a little bit more of the egg.
