    One of my female Muscovies was not doing well today. She was young and laying eggs for the first time but I have been pulling them instead of letting her lay on them.

    I had to cull her. Below is my photo album with pictures of what I found inside of her. It looks like a ton of eggs. Hopefully the webshot's site will keep the pictures on the web site so you can see them.

    Please let me know what you think was going on with this female duck.

    WOW! [​IMG] That's a LOT of eggs! Maybe she was egg bound? [​IMG] Somebody who knows more than me (and that would be anybody!) might could answer your question.

    Thank you. That's interesting. This is the first female Muscovy that I butchered. I am curious to see what the next one will look like.
