    If you search on here, there was some things that I have read that you can do. One was to let her soak in warm water...??? Hope you get some better information soon!

    She could have a bad infection inside her egg tract. I would start her on antibiotics as soon as possible. Give fluids, vitamins what ever you can get down her. if she won't drink you can inject water/vitamin mix just under skin. Keep her warm. Do a search on egg perio....... I forget the rest of it....
