I will. I did notice after checking on her just a little bit ago that she has a little eye crust on one of her eyes, anything I can do for this? I’ve made sure to check her eyes everytime and this is the first time I’ve seen it.

A warm damp towel compress on the eye may be sufficient, but if it continues to look gunky you may apply an ophthalmic ointment such as Terramycin using a cotton swab. Ensuring she has head deep water to clean her head in is important for maintaining proper ocular health.

Yes, make sure that the water is deep enough for her to dunk her whole head in. You said you had a bath tub full most of the time though right? That should be deep enough.
I have a deep bowl in the tote for her to dunk her head but she doesn’t seem to be using it to dunk her head. She can’t freely access the tub by herself but I’ve been filling it up and helping her in there about every 4 hours and letting her swim and play for about an hour.

Okay, she is probably dunking her head when you aren't looking. Glad she gets to swim everyday!

Update: Donald is still doing really good I got her some vitamins/electrolytes to place in her water. She has however started shedding a good bit and hasn’t laid an egg in the past 2 days. Is it possible that me bringing her inside where it’s warmer is it possible that she molting?

Sounds like molting to me, though it is very late in the season for her to be molting. Has she molted this season yet?

Not that I have noticed, this is definitely the most shedding she has done and is the first time she hasn’t laid any eggs since August. I was initially worried about her possibly not laying after the attack but she laid 2 days in a row and now we’re on 2 days that she hasn’t laid and since she is shedding I’m hoping it’s that she’s molting and that there isn’t anything wrong internally.

This is what her resting area looks like right now if it helps. I change the towel out twice a day and each time it looks like that
