Cockatiel possible egg binding
by: Tracie

If the breeder did not do a DNA test on the bird, then he/she does not know if it is a female or not. This sounds like egg binding and your bird will die if it does not pass the egg.

You need to get the bird to an avian vet quickly if the bird does not lay the egg. If it is not an egg, you certainly need to take the bird to a vet. Dr. B can not help your bird because he can not examine your bird.

You need to make sure your bird is on a healthy pellet diet like Harrison's to prevent egg binding in the future. Please read the articles on chronic egg laying and parrot health on our Parrot Training page.
