cockatiel with swollen belly
our female cockatiel has a very swollen belly - took her to a general vet 7 days ago. He seemed to think it was some sort of internal infection and not egg bound ... has given antibiotics to put in her water. That was a week ago but nothing has changed ... still the same swelling. Bird is eating and pooing.
Her history : after hatching and raising 3 chicks she kept laying eggs non - stop. Also was mating a lot with her mate. After 26 eggs accumulated in the nesting box and none hatched I took them all away and shortly after this she developed the very large swelling in her lower belly area. She is approx 6 years old
