    HELPING A EGG BOUND PULLET
    Glenda L Heywood

    I was emailed this thought on helping an egg bound pullet to which I added also some help

    Fancier emailed this:
    I have not LOST pullets to eggbound lately.Neil Mahaffey told me how to
    save them.Hold them and gently squeze till you can see the egg shell.take a
    shringe and gently pierce the shell and slowly drain
    the yoke.The shell will
    remove fairly easy after the presure is relieved.I removed one this afternoon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GLH REPLIED
    Yes Neil is correct on proceedure only thing to this,
    IS to please put some OLIVE OILl or
    some kind of oil in with eye dropper first.
    putting eye dropper on each side of vent before pushing egg in to sight.

    Also I used a eye drooper and filled with oil and inserted it to the left of the vent and squeezed the oil into the bird. Then take a dropper full of oil and insert to right of vent and squeeze oil in.

    And try to bring the fingers up under the egg and not to squeeze the birds tender sides.
    you can break the bones in the vent doing this.

    Also when the but end of the egg appears just take a
    large darning needle and poke secveral holes in the end of the egg and smush easy like on the side of the egg and remove the white and yold
    or use the syringe to suck the yolk and white out

    and wipe with a a paper towel. now take a large twizers and pull gently the whole egg shell out.
    DO NOT leave any egg shell in the vent

    then put some kind of oil in vent again for healing this bird needs literal oil with eye dropper put in the vent
