She has all the symptoms. Waddle-walk, puffed up so she looks obese, but droopy all at the same time; lethargic, breathing heavy (and seems to be breathing through her backside), vent in constant motion. She's poohed some, small amounts that are normal in color but more watery. She is sitting wrapped in a towel on my lap after soaking in a warm sink for a good thirty-five minutes. I finally was bold enough to insert a finger into her vent and I can feel it. But my finger isn't touching egg, I'm feeling it through what seems to be a membrane, so I have no idea how to help her get it out. What do I do now? Edited to add: It is the next day, and after 2 baths and a hot water bottle, the egg still hasn't passed. "Golden Legs" is a 52 week-old Buff Orpington. She mostly free-ranges during the day but has access to organic grow pellets. She didn't lay yesterday and may not have laid the day before. The day before that I am pretty sure she did, as I had the same number of eggs as I do chickens. There is no vet for at least an hour's drive, and that one may not take chickens. Doesn't anyone have any advice from having been through this?
