eclectus behavior - moaning

by Sheryl
(Las Veas)

my eclectus is moaning and hanging on her perch with one wing down. Her feathers are puffed up. She has laid two eggs but i'm concerned about the puffed up and moaning. i took her to the vet and he said just mating behavior but ive had her for 15 yeas and it's never been this bad??? not eating either but weight was the same at the vet.

If this is egg-binding you hae no tme to waste. This s a life threatening EMERGENCY!

Please get her to an AVIAN vet ASAP.

Have you taken the bird to an avian vet or just a dog/cat vet? If it has been laying eggs, this sounds like egg binding, NOT mating behavior.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird or another vet to examine your bird.
