    I got the egg out, but there was a lot of membrane sticking out with it. I got it back in as best I could, but now I don't know what to do with her? Do I put her back with the others? Isolate her for a few days? HELP!!!!

    Will it happen again?

    Shelley, I think that you should treat it as if it were a chicken:
    1. isolate in warm, dark place
    2. treat prolapse with prep-H
    3. soak bum in warm water and remove as much of the membrane as possible

    Good luck.
