    About 2 weeks ago I rescued these chickens from a battery farm chicken rescue center. Now one of them is very ill and i can feel an egg is stuck also where her food stores it is very full. I've given her smashed up calcium tablets and put hot water in it so i could feed it to her. I hope that works but please help for anymore tips and things on what to do. Thanks

    Dip her butt area in a sink or tub filled with warm water. This helps to soothe the chicken and push the egg out. We used to have a chicken that got egg bound a lot, we found out that when we gave her some electrolytes in her water, she would perk up, get excited, and out popped the egg! So, perhaps give her some electrolytes in her water. Best of luck! ;)
