Subject: Emergency! Egg bound quail!

I really need your help!
I'm pretty sure my female King quail is egg bound
When I went in The aviary a little while ago, I saw her trying to lay an egg.
Then, when I went back in there later, she was running around with her mate, like she normally does. I notice that the there were the same amount of eggs as there were the day before, meaning that she hadn't layed the egg.
So I carefully picked her up, and examined her vent.
I can clearly see the egg inside her.
I've brought her inside, in a box with a hot water bottle.
I would take her to the avian vet, but for some Unknown (and dumb-no offence) reason, they are closed on the weekends! They are available for call consultations and emails, and I have emailed them, but they haven't gotten back yet, and I'm not sure how much that will do
And after reading this http://www.voy.com/13979/30950.html
I don't really trust the other vets that aren't Specialised in birds.
I got her to drink water, and eat some boiled egg.
I hand fed her my emergency medicine, but I really don't know what else to do.
It doesn't even seem like she is trying to lay the egg anymore.
Someone please help!
