Eclectus on bottom of cage
Ruby...the 15 year old red sided eclectus thinks I am her mate....when she sees me....she always runs to the bottom of the cage and starts scratching and making her "strained" noise. The last two weeks have been different. She is now staying on the bottom of the cage all the time. I get her out and she lifts her tail and leans forward.....but her staying on the bottom all the time worries me.
Two years ago she had 2 stuck eggs that were oblong and sideways that had to be surgically removed. The Dr. also removed a section of "tubing" that would make it difficult for her to ever lay another egg again. She has not stayed on the bottom all the time like this before. When I pick her up she seems fine....and lifts her tail. I don't know if I am worrying for nothing... If that section was removed so it would be hard for her to lay a egg again...what could it be?
