    So my duck recently started laying eggs. But whenever she does she makes a LOT of noise, I know it must hurt her when she lays them (she doesn't have a partner) so is there something I can do so shes not in so much pain? (she's 6 months old)

    Some of my hens do that while they lay and as far as I know there's nothing really to do. If she's just starting then her vent may still be pretty tight, give her some time to get used to laying. One of my girls cried for about 10 minutes when she laid her first egg but now she's silent when she lays.
