Yes the dead animal produced well this year. The living animal has never produced. They are both over 35 grams.
First, no harm meant by recommending a vet call, you will notice most people JUST want to get an answer here in lieu of calling the vet! Second, the reason we ask questions is to try to help. In the future you may want to provide all the stats of your animal on the first post so that we can get right down to business
I have personally only been dealing with Rhacs for the past 2 years, building my stock and then breeding the past year. In this time I have never seen or heard of what you are describing as being "egg bound" or any other problems with eggs besides the few infertiles. Was she showing any signs of digging or preparing to lay?? Did she act "sick" and was she eating ok? Like I said, not too much you can do about "egg binding" from what I have read. What are you feeding? Are they housed alone, just the 2 or more?
Good luck with her. Maybe someone who has been in the hobby longer will have some advice. Have you done a forum search while you wait!!!
