    My turkey hen has been breeding with my tom and laying eggs for a couple of weeks now. Yesterday she did not get up and today she won't move either. I thought she might be egg bound but I do not see or feel an egg. She will flap her wings and kick her legs so I know nothing is broken. Besides soaking her in warm water, I don't know what to do.

    So I gave her a warm bath and put olive oil claoca. She excreted some bits of egg yolk. She still won't get up or move around. I cannot find the eggshell.
