yes the egg white did pass and she is acting herself again.i am going to check into the oyster shell in the morning.the love you get back from these beautiful animals is priceless.I thank you for taking the time to help .I know it can be awful to see things that you have not seen before, and wonder if you should be taking some kind of action.
I suspect there may be some yolk or egg white mixed in with her poop, too. As long as it passes, things should be okay.
Does she have free choice oyster shell and/or layer food?
And I really understand about being so attached to these dear creatures.
