Hi Everyone! I posted about this a while ago, but didn't get a clear answer. Over the summer in late August-maybe earlier- one of my hens had trouble passing a shelless egg. Heres is how I treated her: I first brought her into the house and gave her a warm bath,I massaged her and she almost fell asleep, but no egg. I waited for her to pass the egg, nothing, so as last resort I lubricated my finger and retreived the egg from inside of her, please keep in mind that it was a shelless egg. Heres were it becomes strange......I only managed to scoop the white of the egg out of her, no yolk, she did however pass a membrane. Later I had her wrapped in a towel sitting on my lap and I felt her pass something else, it was an egg yolk! Surprisingly it was incased in it's own membrane.....funky egg right? Anyway, getting to the point, Gloria (the hen) hasn't laid an egg since. She did go through molt a month later, and I don't supplement light in the winter so none of the girls are laying right now. Whether Gloria lays an egg or not doesn't matter much, she is strictly a pet and has a permenant home here. I'm just curiose I guess. -Also, she did get egg bound with a shelless egg in the spring, only once though and it was a normal egg that she passed after a bath. -She also time to time passed an egg that was shelless, only maybe 3 times though. She will be two years old in march and began laying in febuary of this year....... Thank you so much everyone! any advise or opinions are very much appreciated! -Roxy -Also PLEASE forgive me for my awfull spelling, It's something I need to work on.
