my 23 year old Jenday conure began laying eggs a year ago during the spring.she has spentt 22 years with her bestie ( female quaker parrot). she would lay about three eggs at a time ,3times. since Thanksgiving two weeks ago she's laid 5 eggs and has another on the way. I've reduced her sunlight as soon as i noticed she was producig. I feed her Harrison's pellets, eggs with shell, upped her all her greens and nuts and fruits..including a powder suppliment. She is losing weight and feathers. I cant find a dr to see her for two weeks from this post. Any insight?

If you can't get an earlier appointment, and they won't answer your questions over the phone, then Call Gulf Gate Animal Clinic & Hospital at 941-312-1953 and see if they will help you.

This could be a medical condition, and trying to give advice over the Internet could bring more harm than good.
