    Poop right now. She did have one more formed one, and she often has watery poops when she's as excited as she is right now, but wondering if I should expect this for the whole cycle?

    That would be enough for me.

    Poops are going to be a little janky for a while. Can't do much judging from that right now. They'll smell more too.

    Okay, thank you! I think I'll go ahead and order supplements so we'll have them if needed, but hold off on giving them to her for now.

    It looks like we're probably not going to have a second egg, or at least not tonight. But, poops are still more watery than normal. That's most likely related to hormones, right? How long should I expect it to last if she doesn't lay any more?

    I would be surprised if she only has one egg, unless she is a very old bird. Some do space out three days

    She's 11 and this is her first ever. Shouldn't I be seeing weight gain by now if she was going to lay again, even tomorrow?

    Ya should see a round bulge in bum area.

    She is old for first time, so possible then she only lays one. Keep eye on any odd behaviour to ensure she does not have egg bound

    No egg bum. No egg bound behaviors. She's super happy and playing, just drinking more than usual. That's what I'm curious about.
