I am thinking we have a hen that is egg bound as she has not laid in three days and is not herself. I have researched treatment and will begin as soon as I have an extra hand in an hour. The question I have is what can I use instead of nutri-drench as everything is closed today? I do have electrolytes and am about to head out to get liquid calcium. Any advice about treatment is welcomed! (This is our favorite girl!)

I'd say go with what you have to hand. Probiotic yoghurt, milk and anything else calcium rich will help or at worst cannot do any harm - along with electrolytes.

Good luck

We soaked her in a warm bath with Epsom salt and she is in a small crate in the bathroom now. Hoping this will help her lay otherwise it's a trip to an emergency vet. :(
