    After reading all about how to help her I'm pretty sure she passed her egg. I gave her a bath some calcium and rubbed vasoline around the egg I could feel in her vent. About 3 hrs later I saw her laying the egg.. But now I noticed she's not doing good. She doesn't walk good and she kinda wobbles or falls. She's eating and drinking and she took some big poops after the egg passed. Do you think she's exhausted? I also gave her some selenium vitamin e oil mixture just in case she had a wry neck. I had these supplies left over from when my silkie had wry neck as a baby. I guess I'll keep her secluded from the others tonight except for her friend Roxanne. They are sisters. Ginger is a bright red small regular lil chicken from the feed store. If anyone has had a hen pass a bound egg did this happen to you? How long until I can put her back with the others? I have two Marans and three regular feed store chickens.

    I think it would be good to post in full detail at "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures ", thread and see what more experiences chicken folks have to say.
