my female parrot has difficulty laying eggs i have taken her 3 times to the vet and they keep her for a couple of days on a incubater on calcium injections to release the egg, is there anything that can be done to help her releasing the eggs without taken her to this ordeal with the vet? Is this normal (not being able to pass the eggs?) Please explain..... thank you.

Trouble laying eggs - egg binding
by: Tracie

According to Dr B, an avian vet and an instructor at a university, he has not seen in over 30 years practice a bird on Harrison's pellets have trouble with egg binding.

If your bird is not on pellets, or is on a cheap colored pellet that is full of chemicals and sugar, it will not get the nutrition it needs.
