    i have a grey hen that was egg bound and i helped her get it out. this was about 7:00 pm yesterday... its now almost 12 and it has been 17 hours and she still hasnt moved. About 30 minutes ago I gave her some yogurt which she seemed to enjoy, but didnt give her much bc it strawberry cheesecake and i know plain is best, i also gave her some sugar watter. She hasnt moved ever since yesterday and im not sure whats goin on or what i should do:/!!! If someone could please help my email is [email protected]

    If the egg is out, put her in a darkened area with water and feed within reach. Let her rest.

    Did the egg break when you helped it out?

    Do you have her in the dark?? She needs to be in the dark for a few days to stop her producing more eggs... I would say it is traumatizing, so she probably needs some time to recoup.. Good Luck
