Runny yellow liquid in poop

Postby Lucyrodney » Sun Jun 16, 2019 12:15 pm

So a month ago ish (May 3) my beardie laid 30 eggs, and last week she laid another. I’d also felt some bumps on the sides of her stomach. Today she pooped and it was mostly just a runny yellow liquid. There was also what looked to be a deflated egg in there. Is this possibly a bacterial infection or is it something to do with the eggs? Her temps are fine 105 ish and 75, 40 gallon long, dubiaroaches, superworms, and kale are most of her diet. She hasn’t been acting off, just a little glass surfing, no burrowing outside her tank, I think she just wants to come out. No blackbearding. I’ll attach a picture of her poop.

Hello,

That definitely looks like an egg to me, also. Since she has laid eggs recently, I would
watch her closely for signs of distress such as black bearding, drastic weight loss, etc.
How is her appetite doing now?
Have you been giving extra calcium too?

Her appetite is fine, she has shown no signs of distress. I have been giving her calcium on all her worms and salads. So is the yellow in there caused by and egg bursting?

Hi there, yes that is almost certainly egg yolk from an egg that burst.

Hello,

How is your girl doing today, has she passed any other strange urates?
How is her appetite? I hope she is doing well, but usually when an egg bursts, they do run
the risk of peritonitis & infection. Let us know how she is doing!

Nope nothing strange, still eating well. She hasn’t pooped since so I’m going to bathe her today. Definitely watching her closely though.
