    I don't think a bird can lay two shelled eggs in one day. Are you 100% sure they came from the same bird?
    Calcium citrate or calcium gluconate for cattle would be best. The dose I give is 50 mg per pound.

    we ard at the vet. A couple things--crop gas some luquid--she seems to be hoarding grit and slightly heavy breathing.

    She is getting fluids, 2 antiobiotuc shots and two antibiotics to go home with.she will be inside for a couple days.

    I can't help but think that thus crazy stupid weather has something to do with it. Nothing can acclimate the right way when it goes from 80 to 35

    Antibiotics for what?
    Which two antibiotics is the vet sending you home with?

    Okay, she should get better from the antibiotics.

    They treat pet ducks differently then production ducks.

    Now how long before the eggs are edible with these antibiotics?

    I guess that I will have to toss both eggs out since I don't know who lays what.
