Aylesbury Ducks (not mine) - is this egg binding?

    I hope the Aylesbury ducks' people won't mind if I post this video - I have not seen this behavior though if I had to guess it would be egg binding. Could someone help brainstorm this?

    One person I spoke with thinks there is an infection of the nervous system involved, so a strong antibiotic, like Baytril, along with Super B complex would be a treatment to consider.

    I had a goose with similar issues. I did plenty of warm bath soakings and eventually she ended up passing some weird blob thing. She was fine after that.

    ouch, that looks painful. Is that what to look for when egg bound?

    I don't feel that it is egg binding - more like ataxia - when an infection affects the nervous system. But I am not an expert, just trying to open this up for thoughts, ideas, experience.
