Try giving her a tums or calcium tablet orally,break into pieces or crush and add to small amount of water for her to drink,calcium helps muscles contract and often works in as little as an hour to expel egg. Keep her quiet/warm and in a dark location.

X2 on the calcium. I actually prefer using liquid calcium gluconate and you can get that at Tractor Supply in the cattle section. It might look like this:


I give about 1ml per 2.2 pounds orally.
