Can I give her this?
I would not.
How long has it been since she has pooped?
Do you know how to tube feed?
Is she eating and drinking?
Can you watch her for a few hours/cage her to make sure?
It may be premature. When was the last time she laid an egg? Has she had any soft shell eggs lately?
How does her crop feel? Is there an odor? Has she pooped? What does it look like? Is her cloaca pulsating and is she actually bearing down while squatting?
Well, shoot. She just pooped a little. It might be more that she’s not eating. I can’t tell. A small poop came out after I checked her vent. It was clear slime with tiny amount of poop. She’s isolating herself and acting like she has to poop. Would there be any harm in trying the stool softener?
I’ll keep watching, but she is not eating and drinking. I just offered wet feed and she ignored it. Her crop was pretty empty before bed and still is, of course. It was a hot day yesterday, so I didn’t swear it too much.
If she's not eating then she won't have anything to poop.
I would not give her a stool softener.
Can you post some pictures and a video of her?
Oh, and I’m pretty sure this one hasn’t laid in over a year. Still bright red in the comb. I’ve known for quite some time it was possible she was laying internally, but with the timing of Bagheera’s sudden death, it could be anything and may or may not be related. Bridge did flick her head once this morning like Bagheera had been doing, but yesterday her mouth looked clear. Her voice was off yesterday, too.
