    My baby has just started laying, and I think she is egg bound. I can feel the egg between her legs, shes walking funny, just not acting right. I gave her the 30 minute sitz bath, then warmed her under the heat lamp. I put her in a brooder with towels and a heating pad under them. I just don't know what else to do. This is day 2 of there any hope?

    While you have her in some warm water, massage her underside. Then wearing a plastic glove, lube inside her vent and outside her vent area with olive oil. Hopefully this will make it easier for her to lay.
