    I finally found some info in a book. My Q is, how far in do you have to go with the FGMO? How do I know when Mae needs my intervention? I really don't have any desire to be fishing around in her vent without need.

    I'm going to wait awhile before doing anything (a few days), but I'd still like to hear from someone who's dealt with this problem before.

    I've never cleaned out an egg bound girl but chances are if your girl is moving around, isn't listless, and just looking sick first, she doesn't have an egg stuck.

    ..there really is not enough info here on what exactly the symptoms are (and how long etc.) to be able to give you any useful information [​IMG]
