    Daryl (We originally thought she was a boy) is a rescue duck. We've had her since she was 4 weeks old. She is now 7 months. Yesterday she started pooing like crazy, it's stringy and sticks to her bum. Her bottom is more pronounced and she is walking slighting hunched with her tail in the air. I read that this is usually around the time they start laying eggs. We gave her a warm bath to wash her and help her relax and then put her in a dark, dry nesting area last night. However this morning she is still the same. She is eating and everything but she is quiet and just not her usual self. Any advice?
