Please help. We have inherited beautiful Silkies that someone abandoned in our yard. This morning the female had an egg hanging completely out of its body surrounded by membrane. She was walking around and eating normally. No lethargy or distress observed. We have researched and done what was discussed. We put it in a warm bath, but cannot find the opening where it is supposed to exit from. We have poked, and prodded to no avail. We have put the egg back inside followed with another warm bath, but nothing has changed. We know there has to be an opening, but it is not visible even after lots of prodding,poking and gently inserting finger. Is it safe to cut the membrane and just take the egg out, which is now mushed? Thanks for any help. We don't want to lose her.
