Hi, i have two ducks Daphne and Daisy and a drake Diddle Duck the drake is an Indian Runner and the Ducks look the same but are brown they were given to me 21/2 years ago My question is one of my ducks hasnt began laying again and I thought that was because she is still moulting but the last week her back area has become extended and I thought maybe she could be egg bound but wasnt sure since she was still moulting, Noticed this afternoon she was having trouble walking and the area has become more swollen, I caught her and put her in warm water so I could massage the area and check her, the area is very soft and squishy.
She is eating and Pooping well and does not appear to be red.
They are only locked up at night to keep stray cats from getting them.I feed them laying mash, Pollard and the occassional shell grit.They also like lettuce leaves. She does not appear to be in any distress only finding it difficult to walk. our drake is very active so we have locked him away from her tonight but he fretts without his girls.
Would anyone have an idea as to what could be wrong with her??
