    Hi, first time ever having an egg bound chicken and I am not entirely sure what to do... I have given her an enema and I have seperated her from the rest of the flock. I read something about a warm moist towel, but she is not laying on it. [​IMG] Any suggestions would be very appericated. Thanks in advance.

    A warm bath usually helps an eggbound chicken pass the egg (or the mass the egg turned into). Are you offering oyster shells to your layers?
