Hello, I have a female kahki campbell who when I let out this morning at 4.30am was fine and herself. A few hours later I went out to check them and she had a very low abdomin and was in the corner not moving just standing. Then later on she had moved to the night time quarters and has just sat there. She ate alot this morning as normal and now she hasn't eaten in a few hours. I gave her a bowl of water which she is using. She is just sleeping and not moving at all. This morning I found a small egg our very first one in the night time quarters and thought it might be her sisters (a call duck) as she was making a nest under the tree. Everyone else is acting fine. Is this what kahkis do at the beginning? Is she about to start laying? Is she confused on what is going on with her body? Is she egg bound? I tried to feel for an egg but I don't know what I'm feeling. Is this normal for fist time layers?
