|Supportive care||Isolate the bird from the flock and place in a safe, comfortable, warm location (your own chicken "intensive care unit") with easy access to water and food. Limit stress. Call your veterinarian.|
|Surgery||Most cases require surgery, to remove the accumulated egg material, and usually followed by a salpingohysterectomy (removal of the oviduct). Followed by antibiotics and anti-inflammatories.|
|Antibiotics||Chosen based on culture and sensitivity results.|
|Hormone implants||Suprelorin® (deslorelin) to help stop future ovulation.|
