is she laying eggs still, could she be egg bound? maybe an egg is stuck and pushing the vent out and preventing her from pooping well. Soaking her in a warm bath will help it will relax the muscles or /and put some vaseline/lube in her vent to help move the egg. She will have a hard abdomen if there is an egg stuck.
