    My hen has a bloated sort of abdomen. I have soaked her in a warm bath and there is still no egg after 2 days.. Her poop is sort of sticky and the size of a pellet or rabbits poop?
    She does stand like a penguin from time to time but nothing happens so she starts walking with just her tail down..
    She is isolated from the rest of the flock and is sleeping inside.
    If she is egg bound, like I suspect, is their any other way I can help her to pass the egg?

    Please help.
    Thank you!
