Cracked open an egg this afternoon, and there's this huge hard looking chunk about the size of a marble (not as round) in the white of the egg. I should've taken a picture to show everyone, it doesn't look like a meat spot. I was weirded out and threw it out instead. Could this have been a meat spot? It was so big, and I know the girls are having a hard time in the heat. (Been doing what we can, fresh water and watery produce, electrolytes, lots of shade).
Also, I'm not sure which duck it is. We have 3 layers, and one drake. One layer and the drake are new in the last couple weeks, adopted. The previous owners stated they would mate daily and she'd lay one/day. As far as I know, they're doing their business and one of the eggs is hers. Our other 2 have consistently laid 1/day, so we'd get 2. Well, we're still getting 2. Unless one is laying their eggs in a bush (they free range), one has either stopped laying, or 2 have slowed down production. Could this be the problem? Should I separate all of them and pinpoint who is the issue and what else can we do? They've acted just find toward each other, so I figured everyone was ok with the newcomers.
Sorry, lots of questions, didn't think multiple threads would be beneficial..
