    First time here. I have an older hen that was doing fine until this am. At first I thought she had a broken leg from coming of the roust,because she stumbled side ways. Can't see or feel anything broken. After going on line I found this site and read some about egg bound,she seems to have the symptoms. I've tried some of the suggestions except the bath, I have nothing big enough to put her in as of yet,any idea how long the calcium tumms would take. Closest trip vet would be Tuesday . Any other suggestions?

    Try to put here under a heat lamp , if that doesnt work you will have to remove the egg by hand , if you do this be sure NOT to break the egg she will die
