Please help! I don't know what to do. Is this an egg stuck? It doesn't look like the pics I've seen online but I don't know what to do.... :-( This is a 21 week old Silver Laced Wyandotte. We just got back from a vaca ( 11days) and I think she was one if the ones that started laying while we were gone. We had 19 eggs when we got back - up to 3/day from 1/day when we left. She was in the nest box for an hour this morning. I kept going out to clean up the coop and she was still there sitting/standing. These are my first chickens so I wasn't sure if it was normal for them to sit/stand there so long. Anyway, about 4:00 I noticed her off by herself nodding off. So at 5:30, my husband came home and we went to check her out and found her sitting alone in the run while the others scampered about their large open pen area. We picked her up (easily, which is unusually since she's not a super chummy gal with people) and checked her out. I pulled on the fleshy piece sticking out (but not very hard). It is sort of like a bamboo shoot (like in Chinese food) in appearance. But it isn't fibrous in texture like a bamboo shoot. very smooth looking... I gave it a little pull and a piece broke free in my fingers. It was a bit squishy ...sort of reminded me of a dense bit of flan (a very eggy hispanic dessert, in case you're not familiar with it ;-) ). We soaked her in a warm epson salt bath for 20 minutes and blew dry her wet feathers. She perked up in the bath and during the blow dry. She drank some H2o during her spa and in the crate afterwards, too. But she's not eating. She also squeezed out a little poo 2x in the crate. And it is darker than normal. She went to sleep in a crate in the garage with a fan on her. (It was 80 and very humid here at 9:15pm). This morning she was still laying down in the crate but looking around and had pooped several times overnight. I put her out with the others to see if she'd eat the oatmeal/yogurt/probiotic breakfast I put out and she did eat with the others. But she is still straining and trying to expell whatever is stuck in there.
