    So 4 or 5 days ago, my RIR was fluffing her feathers and being lethargic. I thought it was an impacted crop, but I believe she may be egg bound. Their was some white almost intenstine looking thing on her butt. I bathed her in warm water twice, and a piece of it came out. Their is still a little bit " stuck" halfway out. I tried pulling it out, but did not want to do any damage. Also, this morning, their was an egg under where she was roosting. Could she have passed and egg, but still have some stuck in there? She is eating and drinking. Thank you

    She passed the egg but she might be prolapsing. Try putting Preparation H on her vent. I wouldn't pull anymore it could her intestine or ovarys.
