    Hello all,
    Does anyone have any experience or solitions in 'unblocking a duck'
    In another post i describe how we lost our Peach just today (white peking duck)
    Long story short, she had 5 lash eggs blocking her.
    The only way i know of would be surgery. In Australia we are looking at around $1500 for this.
    I have another 3 girls and i know what to look for now. But id like to be able to help them pass these eggs if they suffer the same problem.
    Possibilities;
    1- inject some sort of natural oil into the oviduct and hope it helps
    2- some sort of medication to help dissolve the lash egg
    3- endescope camera and some precision tools to help break up the lash egg so they can pass easily
    4- special diet?

    Anyone have any experience or knowledge to share?

    Oh, and one of my other girls has sat and helped my type this up. She has sat on my leg the whole 20 mins (pic attached) 20181126_221455.jpg 20181126_221435.jpg

    only persons who comes to mind that may have experienced this would be @casportpony or @Pyxis both educators and experienced with poultry. I will follow because it's something we all need to know. Very sorry for your loss. :(
