    Jermima is about 6 months old, we use Vimx food which is an organic food with natural wormer in it, she just looks very depressed, and doesn’t want to join in, not interested in food including mealworms that are her favourite. She is drinking a bit.

    How long has she been like this? @Disue54

    Can you feel down around her tummy gently and see if you can feel an egg?

    Any chance you can take her to the vet? if she is egg bound you can lose her if infection some but antibiotics may help.

    Letting her float is some nice warm water can help her relax and possibly lay an egg if that is the problem.

    I agree with @Miss LydLydia, I think a vet is your best option.
