    Hi

    I was wondering if any of you could help. I have a 2 year old Khaki Campbell Duck. Over the last 4 weeks her abdomen has been swellling up. She is still eating and drinking fine however she hasn't laid over the last 4 weeks, bar 2 very tiny eggs which didn't have a very thick shell.
    She is gradually getting worse and is struggling to walk.

    I have tried over 8 vets in my area, and no one is willing to help - due to either not being registered with them or knowing very little about ducks.

    I was wondering if anyone knew what this could be, and how to overcome it? I have read about egg binding - however she doesn't seem to be showing all the symptoms for this.

    Thank you.
