Egg laying Sun Conure
(Castalian Springs, Tennessee)
Hi, I just recently became caretaker of a beautiful sun conure named Sunny. We got him 3 weeks ago and then Friday 07/18/2008 "he" layed an egg (it fell on the floor and broke). She had a very small under developed egg 2-3 days later.
I am stressed as I thought she was a he (as did her owner). she is acting different. No hissing but seems to sit with feathers ruffled and head bobbing and making a "clucking" type noise. She is eating, drinking, pooping normally. when holding her all she wants to do is lay on my stomach and make the clucking sounds and occassionally flipping of one of her wings. Do I need to take her to a vet? also what temp does the room she is in need to be?
