Thanks Rainer. I agree with Bluerosy, but I am not a fan of palpating stuck eggs. What happens is they adhere to the oviduct thru scare tissue. You can tear that and its not so good.

If she is doing fine, eating passing food and such. Then you can wait until the next go around. The stuck slug(that's what is sounds like) are often absorbed when the new follicles develop. That's a good thing. I am seeing that now with a Rosy. I found her with rock hard, angular ovum. They simply disappeared, when she cycled again.

I have also seen that with L.thayeri. She was gifted to me, and full of rock hard ovum. The next spring, she laid a perfect clutch and the rocks were gone.
I believe the danger is when a egg is stuck at the vent. That has a high fatality rate. Your past that, so feed her up. If she starts to express problems, then off to the vet(if that's your choice) I wish you all the luck
