    Do you supply Oyster shell?..It could be a reproductive infection?..

    Hi,yes she has unlimited oyster shell. It’s now been a month since she layed a normal egg,then she laid the top 2 in week ago & the other one today. She seem very slow & she is swollen,but still eating lots & wanting her daily cuddles with me( I’ve had her since day 1 & she thinks 8m he4 mummy).....I just don’t want her to be in any pain

    If she is still eating and drinking and not acting sick she possibly has a reproductive issue going on..
    Can you take her to a Vet?

    A vet is a very good idea something is def going on inside. With her being swollen . Still having an appetite is a good sign too but if at all possible a vet is the way to go if infection antibiotics can help. @LesleyH63
