    I have 4 Khaki Campbell ducks, 2 hens 2 drakes and have noticed one of my hens looking pretty plump in her chest and rump area. They have recently started laying though I haven't gotten and egg in the last few days. Found 4 eggs on the 21st then one daily until none since the 24th. They have been free range since I got them. They get along, have a kiddie pool, and water, food 20% protein laying pellets is what Tractor Supply had. Now I have looked at millions of photos and have read for days trying to figure out if it is something I should be concerned with but it is all over the place. Some are saying fat duck others are saying other things. Any advise? Anyone else encounter this? I have not caught her to see if it may be hard crop though it doesn't look hard just kinda fat and sways a bit, looks kind of jiggly? She isn't distressed, she is eating and drinking good and is still keeping up with the others.

    Hi!

    Not sure if you can upload photo's till you have made a few more posts . . .

    But that will help.

    Meanwhile, you might consider - just to be safe - some probiotics.

    Do they get treats? What kind?
