Take it to the vet immediately. My lovebird died from egg binding.

Bird egg bound

If your bird is egg bound, it will die without immediate vet care. Please Find an Avian Vet for your bird.

In the future, feed your birds Harrison's pellets and you won't have to worry about the bird getting egg bound.

Just so you know, birds don't actually get pregnant, they produce an egg which takes about 25 hours. The egg is laid and she is no longer "pregnant."
