    my peking duck is 34 weeks old and has been laying for about a month already. 3 days ago she looked constipated.. and then i checked on her again and she had 2 eggs back to back in the coop. so when i picked them up one had no shell and the other did. so then 2 days passed and i didn't get any eggs and she looked like she was pushing. then this morning i went down and saw there was one egg in pieces all over and one egg again. is she sick? or just having a hard time? also i am giving her layena nutrena food, pond fish, lettuce, basically anything she wants lol. so i dont know what im doing wrong but if there is anything i can give her id love to find out. THANKS!

    Quote:If she is straining, it is likely she is having some difficulties... I'm told to keep hens that are eggbound in warm, moist environments. It is most common in young birds. If you don't intervene early, you can lose your bird.

    Here's a link I found just from a google search:
