I have a 3-2-year-old barred rock who seems to be having a bit of an egg problem. leading up to this, she's been laying fine so I'm thinking she tried to lay but she laid a soft-shelled egg and it broke. Just today, when I let her out I noticed when she went to use the bathroom that she had what seemed to be an egg sack hanging out. my immediate thought was it needed to come out, so I very gently removed it, but there were more strands. I fished another piece out but it looked like she was in the beginning stages of prolapse, so I left it. I know there is still eggshell stuck, so I'm worried, I know she's at risk of infection now, so what should I do? I'm considering bringing her in and giving her a warm bath, in hopes of soothing her, then putting her somewhere dark to see if she can pass it herself.. or should I remove it? any tips are appreciated.
