Could girl cockatiel be pregnant or sick?

My girl cockatiel is puffy, most of the time. She does not want to fly for the last two days. Her appetitite is normal, (maybe slightly increased) so the only changes I see are the puffiness, not wanting to free fly, and possibly napping a bit more than ususal.

Cockatiel sitting fluffed up
by: Tracie

Birds don't get pregnant like humans. They produce an egg within a couple of days and lay it.

If your bird is sitting fluffed up a lot of the day, then please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to rule out illness and disease.
