    My Girl was egg bound today and I was able to remove the egg unbroken. Her "egg shoot" is outside her body and bloody. I tried to push it back inside but it came back out immediatly. I also placed wet suger on her bottom hoping it would help her tissue retract. It appears that she is still trying to push. I cannot feel anything =I have placed her in a dark and seperate housing and placed antibiotics in her water. I am WORRIED I may loose her. What else can I do?????

    Do a search on here for prolapse. I have read lots about how to deal with it but have no personal experience with prolapse.

    ok, thank you for helping.. I am really worried. I looked up prolapse on this site and used the honey like they say wish me luck. She is still trying to push I think maybe she still has another egg stuck but I do not feel anything..
