    My 5 year old duck has been laying again recently and now she's got some sort of egg problem When she's pooped there was blood. I think an egg must have broke inside her. Her eggs have been fine, she's had enough calcium/protein..I don't know why this has happened. Taking her to the vets tomorrow but what can be done in the mean time? I thought a warm bath might help? Might make the broken egg, if there is one, come out...

    Hoping someone has some advice. What will the vet likely need to do to get the broken egg out? Assuming there is a broken egg.
