I'll just add that there isn't anything you can feed to prevent egg binding. Supplement calcium because making eggs uses a lot of that, but to prevent binding you have to prevent laying. If this is a one-off event I think it isn't a big deal (but all my birds are male so I haven't had this experience) but if she starts laying one clutch after another, you'll need to try to find changes in her environment that make her less likely to get into a spring mode.
