I know that my chicken is eggbound. She has a large abdomen and she is wattling like a penguin. I have searched the forum and heard about placing her in warm water and massaging it out. Putting her over warm air to help ease it as well and massaging in general. I know that giving her calcium will also help. I watched some videos someone recommeded. But I think it would be a little easier for her to pass it when I tried this if there was ONE egg but with how large her stomach is there has to be more than one. SO I know it can take awhile. The thing is when do you know when it's just going to take time and you just aren't doing it right and ain't working???? Also, ya'll do seperate her yes? I really don't know where in the world to put her. How many times a day should I attempt putting her in the water? I know that when a chickens starts to close their eyes they are really sick and during treatment (massagin in water) you need to back off but when she is sitting on the heat and relaxing is this ok? She is going to want to go to sleep in general. I just want to make sure to do this right. I also know that some have to put their finger up her to see what is up there or to help ease it out and some try to pop it to get it out but with having more than one in her would this still be recommended? And when you do this how do you know that you are doing it right?
