I have a small bantam d’Uccle who is a year old and just recently started laying her eggs. She has extreme difficulty pushing them out. It causes her a lot of stress and energy and time to lay an egg. She makes a little exasperated squeak noise with every push. It’s heartbreaking to watch her struggle. Today I put her in a bit of warm water to help her relax and it seemed to make it easier, but I don’t know how reasonable it is to have to do every time she lays an egg, which is about every other day. The lining of her vent seems to be swollen as well, and that’s not helping with getting the egg out. Can I feed her different food to make the egg smaller? Or supplement her food with something to lubricate her cloaca? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
