    Are you sure it is an egg? If it is an egg and it's still there you can grab her and see if you can't masage it out with some oil or float her in a warm bath. If it is soft and pink, it could be a prolapse too. Good luck.

    do you have any oil? (like baby oil or even a salad oil would do) the smear on the area... place the bird on a warm steamy towel (not TOO hot)... this should help ...
