Bird with swollen vent
by: Tracie

This could be a tumor, an infection or egg binding. If it is egg binding you only have a few hours before the bird may die if the egg doesn't pass.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.

To prevent egg binding you need to feed your bird 80% high quality pellets like Harrison's or Roudybush and only 20% healthy treats. Switching Birds To Pellets article
