Welcome to the Duck Forum, @TeresaLovie . . . I can see how some comments can stir a response, and for new folks, it's not always clear how old a post is.

 

In any case - sounds like you have some critters you care about!  Great!

My female muscovy duck has had this giant fluid filled sack beside her vent, and has not eaten or drank anything in 5 days. She had 2 eggs in the yard. She can't really walk anymore. She is shaking uncontrollably. It Is not an egg, it is mushy and fluid filled like. I let her sit in warm water twice and I'm not sure what to do. Please help, I feel really bad for her, seems like she's on her last breath. 😢

That looks bad and a vet would be your only answer I am thinking at this stage.  Is this right outside her vent if so It's a prolapse which means her insides are hanging outside.

Yes its beside her vent, not on it. She is pretty messed up, doesnt feel like something to push back in anywhere. She has been shaking all day today abd wont move. Does this bubble needs drained? I cannot afford a vet for her, plus there arent any duck vets in my area. Thanks.

She needs veterinary care - the shaking and so forth is possibly due to infection and pain.

 

Please try to think creatively - perhaps you can find a waterfowl rehabilitator, get a vet to do the work as charity, contact an animal shelter for help finding a contact.  She needs help now, as you know.

 

I would at least, for now, get her into a tub of clean lukewarm water.  She needs to be confined in a clean pen with fresh water and good food, away from flies.
