My husband and I have a 9 month old Sicilian Buttercup. About 4 days ago I was holding her and noticed that I felt and egg in her belly. She had not layed in about 5 days. We soaked her in some warm water and dried her off and put her back. This is 4 days later and she still hasn't layed the egg, but she seems completely normal. She is eating and drinking and running around. She doesn't even seem like she is trying to pass the egg. She will jump in nesting boxes if there is an egg in there and sit on the egg but never even tries to lay her egg. It has been super cold here with a temp of like 3 this morning. Could the temps be causing the problem or is she egg bound?
