    yes, Unfortunately heard of it never expereinced it-if you go to the search section up top and type eggbound in it you will get MANY threads on it. My best advice is to bath her in warm water for a good 15-20 minutes to get her to relax her muscles-feed her some scrambled eggs with lots of olive oil. Can you see the egg? Might want to try and rub oil on her vent area to help it slide out easier too
