    After reading all these posts on chickens being egg bound, and acting funny. I had to check to see if my Black Jersey died from being egg bound. I did indeed find a small egg, her vent also looked a little swollen. How long once the egg is formed does it pass? She didn't show any signs of being ill or uncomfortable, hurts me to think I missed something I could have corrected. Please, any thoughts?

    The whole cycle takes about 25 hours from the release of the mature yolk to pushing the egg out.

    I am sorry for your loss.
