Can a chicken be egg bound with an egg with no shell? My baby unfortunately doesn't produce shells on her eggs. We're looking into getting her an implant to stop her from laying all together. When she lays her egg she usually seems to not feel good before and for a little while after, but then perks up to her normal self. Today she woke up struggling. I gave her 2 warm Epson salt baths and put a little lubrication on the vent. Shes still standing, tail lowered, vent pulsing, and looking exhausted. I don't know what else to do. I have her in a nice dark quiet place. Can she be egg bound when the egg is soft and no shell?
