This first photos are eggs laid by Mo last year, what amazed me was it was the second one from her that day, I know it was her as she laid it on the kitchen floor in front of me  :shock:
After a day off Mo laid 3 more soft shelled eggs then went back to "normal"
Inside the egg was yolk as normal and also a blood clot the sixe of a 10p :shock:





The Goose Eggs :

In January Crumb started laying for the first time, the first 2 eggs were normal and about 38 hours apart then we got these


Laid within an hour of each other  :shock:  I thought at the time it looked like they'd been joined at some stage! Half the shell was hard the other soft. when put togeather they looked like this





In total I got 3 (or should I say 6 eggs like this) after the first time I knew they were coming as Crumb went very quiet, not intrested in food, and drank alot of water. She was very down and it's difficult to discribe but I knew something was wrong.  

Since then I have spoken to a lady who having seen the photo's belives Crumb was egg bound and the eggs had been pushing togeather in order to get out (think that makes sence??) The lady in question said I was very Lucky she came through it.  

I put some oil in a small baby animal feeding bottle and squirted into her Vent which did seem to help the eggs out. This never happened again (touches wood very quickly).

Hope the info might be of use to someone one day :D

When you see them while a soft egg is forming, it is obviously very stressful for them.
Well done for your quick thinking with oiling the vent.  :)

Don't look any further if your eating

Just now 5:30 on the 21/8/08 the following egg was laid by one of the ducks. I have been sat out side with them, no poorly ducks, no noise looked up and there it was. Can't even be sure who was sat there :?

It looks like well a soft shell with a hard shell with another hardish shell inside?????


Upon opening the egg it stunk but here see for yourself the stages I've gone through....

Soft shell, but felt hard underneath


Drained soft shell & removed to find hard lump




Opened hard lump, very strong off smell, but at the back of gunk appears to be another shell  :shock:




The bits after I'd disected



I can not stress enough that non of my birds are off colour in any way, I've had softies before but always had soft insides!!

All birds are eating, drinking and doing normal duck things.

But I will be keeping a very close eye on things  :wink:

Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.
