    BO was o.k. last night. this morning she was prolapsed with two eggs bound in the prolapse. Our hens are just starting to lay. She may have been egg bound yesterday. then the bound egg caused a prolapse over night? and this mornings egg came in behind? After cleaning the protrusion and trying to coax the eggs out, it appears that the sack is twisted and the fist egg is stuck to the membrane. How can i untwist her? is there any hope? Please help. Thanks.
