What do you do when a hen gets an egg stuck?
If she hasn't passed it in a few hours (in many cases they do) then put some KY jelly or oil in her vent (inside, not just around it), massage her abdomen gently, keep her calm and relaxed. If she doesn't pass it by the days end then she may need surgery to get it out.
Does your hen have a stuck egg?
You can also put her in a warm bath. I think do this first then the ky.
Thanks, that too.
Look up egg bound . Lots of help here. I'm still new and there's more qualified people then me. Sorry Gitabooks. You may be more qualified than me lol.
Oh no, don't worry. I've had egg-bound hens, but I've only tried the ky-jelly and they have always passed the egg, often without any help at all. I think I've lost a couple to egg-binding, awhile ago, but I didn't know what it was until it was too late.
I'm not an expert either, just reporting what I researched.
well you have more experience then me. I've just been researching myself.
Why is the rooster upset that the hen is eggbound?
Egg passed I put her down in some warm water just sit her in for about 10 min.-----she is ok now. what causes that to happen?
Glad she's ok . There's post on here about some of the causes of egg binding. I'm not really sure myself.
