Not sure if my hen is broody or egg bound. She hasn't laid for two days now, and the last time she laid, she laid an egg with a weird shell - it felt normal, but when I tapped it, it sounded metallic. She was sitting most of the day in the coop with her tail very high up. When I looked at her lil butt hole, it was throbbing, almost like it was breathing in and out. Wondered if this is normal or if this is her straining? I tried to feel inside her vent for an egg, but I haven't felt anything, but I also didn't go that deep/am not sure if I am doing it right. She's a very petite silkie bantam, so I didn't want to rip her a new one with my finger. I brought her into the air-conditioned kitchen for about a half hour, and she walked around, drank a little water, and ate a little food. She ate some tomato willingly, but I could not get her to eat the rest of the fish, which I had given her some of (and she was very excited for) three days ago (which I am wondering if caused the weird egg and that's why she refused it?). She's in the tub right now soaking with epsom salts. I'm still a little panicked though. She's my favorite bird - what do you guys think? Thanks!
