    I owned a trio of adult ducks for two years with no issues until earlier this year my male attempted to mate with one of my hens. Thankfully i found her in time, she had prolapse and was bleeding but we managed to help her out and now shes back to her happy healthy self with her sisters and I have sold my duck. However since the event my chicken hasnt laid a single egg but recently started brooding (still not laying) In all honestly i dont mind her lack of eggs, shes more of a pet to me to id rather her not strain herself and cause another injury however i just want to know if there is a chance this will be permanent. I dont want her laying again, i love her to bits and im worried shell hurt herself from the injury my duck caused :(

    Possibly he damaged her and Her ovary isn't producing yolks? You will have to wait her out..

    You may want to think about giving her hormone implants, to make sure she doesn't lay anymore eggs, or even worse, and what could possibly be happening, is that she is laying them internally and they are slowly building up inside of her. Here is information about the hormone implant. Only select vets will give them though - http://www.poultrydvm.com/drugs/deslorelin
