My 7 month old mallard has been egg bound for four days. The first day, she acted like she needed to lay one and went into her nest for a about an hour and a half, came out limping with her tail off to the side, didn't eat much or have much energy. She went back to the nest a couple more times trying to lay it. The next day she wasn't limping and ate some more, but still no egg. Today she is acting completely normally, eating fine, energetic, etc. She was in the bushes for a couple hours today and I was hoping to find an egg, but she wasn't successful. I've gave her warm baths and even oiled her cloaca. I can feel the egg in there, it seems a little larger than usual and it's right at the cloaca. I've even tried helping her as gently as I could push the egg out, but I was afraid of hurting her. Should I wait it out and let her try on her own, or should I try to help somehow? This happened with her first egg, but I think it was in there for maybe up to six days!
