One of our ducks has been sitting around a lot. My son said everywhere she sits, there is what looks like a whitish or yellowish poop. None of the females have laid eggs recently so we arn't sure if she has a broken egg, or if this is something else. Any suggestions?

If it looks like poop, chances are it's poop. Does it have any kind of "shell" at all? Leathery, or like soft plastic?

Since the ducks poop is generally brown because they twiddle in dirt quite often, I'd say it doesn't look like normal "poop" I haven't seen it, so I don't know the details.
We will try the warm water.
