Please couyld you take your computor off caps lock as this is considered shouting, thanks.

I personally don't like the holding over steam method as steam is very very hot and can scold. Place her in a sink of warm water (make sure the water level is well over her vent) and keep her in this for at least 30 mins (keep topping up the water with warm). She may relax her muscles enough to pass the egg whilst in the water. Even if she doesn't after 45 mins remover her and then towel dry her followed by blow drying her with a hair dryer on a warm setting. If the egg breaks you will need to make sure it all comes out as otherwise she can get internal infections.
Staffies are softer than you think.

Hi again, just to let you know that the hen is a lot better today, she didnt lay an egg, but there are a lot of her feathers laying about, so maybe i was wrong about her being egg bound, it is still very hot here she also may have been over heated, thank you for the advice Tina
