I have a year old bantam EE hen that I noticed was not looking good yesterday. She kept soaking herself in a puddle next to the duck pool. I tried to catch her but she was still quick enough to get away. I got her this morning and inspected her and thought I could feel that she was egg bound. I soaked her in warm water for about an hour and now I have her wrapped in a towel on a heat pad. Right below her vent it looks and feels like a big soft shell egg. How safe is it to go in with a finger and check? I was looking at her vent but I am unsure of how to go about it and I do not want to hurt her anymore than she already is.
