Help my female 3yo res turtle has been gravid since May and layed during the last two weeks only one egg
Then 3 on June 2nd when I took her to the vet
All together she's had 8 eggs now and been acting normal; it's her first clutch so she's been laying them in the water and eating them
Dry docking last night The last egg she laid looked like a red blob there was a shell peice attached idek if it is an egg it's just like a red sac with a shell but it's been almost 20 days since the viable eggs were laid but I'm worried because I can feel more eggs atleas 2 and I don't want her to get an infection or bound
Has anyone ever seen this happen??? There's a male in the tank so the eggs were fertile I read it could also be a bladder stone??? The vet wants her to go in for x rays but I can't afford it right now..
Also the sac had a VERY fishy smell bright red not like a scab

She had some red pepper the other day I thought it could be that but it didn't look like skin it was a big peice of something red and foul smelling (bigger then I cut the peices) and it came out with a shell peice and no fecal matter: she has eaten her eggs before so maybe she just passed it with the pepper??
