    Poor baby! Maybe a soak in warm water would help?

    I am no expert and have never delt with this.



    Get her in a warm bath, and gently feel around the prolapsed egg. It is most probably stuck between folds and needs lubrication to help pass correctly - hoping that the tissue is not too dried out.


    Do you have any type of lube - KY or even veggie/olive oil? Use this to lube her bottom area up really well to help prevent any more tissue damage and tissue dry-out.

    I believe there was a thread on here with a chicken like this - the owner had to cut an opening for the egg. I will see if I can find it.
