    Why duck is laying eggs and I just want to know why she is [​IMG]pooping basically liquid. She just started to do this and it smells awful.

    She may have an infection in her digestive tract. Clear liquid, dark, black, green? It's okay to describe it in detail here. Most of us don't get grossed out.

    If it is an infection, then she needs an antibiotic - a vet would be a big help.

    How is she today?

    It's the same color as it always is light green with white. It's just liquid now... And smeels disgusting. She started to do this after she laid her first egg. She doesn't look sick and isn't acting any different.

    I wonder if she's eaten more worms or other high protein food. Protein makes their poop whiffy.

    What could be the problem is inflamtion, it happend to one of mine, if her appetite drops or she is drinking excessively, like literally only laying down by water she could have a blockage form the inflamtion that is not letting any solid poop out,
