    I'm very new to chickens but sounds like you have an "egg bound hen" googling that phrase will turn up some information that I hope will help if no one with experience replies with a quick answer For example here's one site I found: http://m.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-treat-egg-binding-in-chickens.html
    You will find many references but this looked fairly easy and safe to try
