Hello everyone, I posted a few weeks ago in regards to my first case of egg binding. One of my female caliking's had 4 eggs remaining in her. About 2 weeks after she laid, 3 of the eggs moved into the lower half of her body. She tried to pass them late one night, but after hours of it being stuck in her vent, and her clearly being exhausted, I ended up gently palpating them out.(Vet was not an option at that time, and she didn't look like she would have made it otherwise)She is her usual self now, still feeding like a champ, and regaining her normal weight. BUT there is still one egg left, and it is high up, has yet to move down. My concern is it growing solid and causing an infection. Should I take her in and have it aspirated? Or should I just continue to leave it alone?(I figured it would have moved down by now like the others,but it appears smaller, possible a slug) She is otherwise fine and does not appear bothered by it, and I would rather leave it like like previously suggested, but just want to be sure and get some experienced opinions on it
