    hello we have a 3 year old redco hen , with signs of egg binding, tail down and wadling been on and off for a week, we have warm bathed her oiled her vent and I have tried to help her lay but the egg inside feels like a long squished hard bar of lumpy soap bout 4 inches long 1 inch wide, when i tried to help her lay it looks like she will prolapse even though i turned the lump to face pointy end out, is there anything I can do,

    I don't have an answer, but I would definitely post this in the Emergencies / Disease / Illness and Cures section.
