My husband let our ducks out this afternoon and he noticed our broody girl was acting weird. She has been sitting for 3 1/2 weeks now coming out to eat and drink normally. Tonight she went down to the pond and was sitting by herself and didn't come back up with the other ducks when it got dark, he had to go pick her up and carry her back to the pen. She normally leads the rest of the ducks back up to the pen and doesn't allow you to pick her up. He put her in the pool in their pen for a little bit but took her out just in case she couldn't get herself out since he was leaving. When he last checked on her she was standing on top of her nest looking like she was trying to poop or lay an egg?? He said she seemed really weak and was kind of tucking her tail under. He felt her belly as best he could and didn't feel any hardness. Any thoughts or ideas what might be going on with her??? I hope shes okay! Shes sitting on 18 eggs now (kicked 3 eggs out today).
