    our Buff was having troubles passing an egg, don't know if she was egg bound but she pretty much had all the symptoms...not moving....laying down...walking funny....and just not herself at all....and her vent was a mess..very nasty......so we i heard to put oil on her vent, but decided to do the warm bath for her....gave her 2 baths in 2 days, message her vent area (where you can feel the egg) and finally we got an egg (in the middle of the run) i really think the bath helped her out alot...she feels so much better now and gave us another egg today.....so hopefully all is good...posted some pics of her "chicken spa" btw, she loved the warm water, she actually feel asleep, lol....

    Yes it does! I'm so glad it went well and she's back to her normal self for you. Every lady needs a spa day!
