swollen butt

If this is egg-binding then you do not have time to wait around. Birds die from egg-binding very quickly without treatment and it causes then great distress.

Your bird is obviously not we and is probably in pain with whatever id causing the swelling which may also be a blockage of some kind.

I would suggest you get to an avian vet ASAP.

Cockatoo with swollen vent
by: Tracie

If your bird is a female and is not eating a high quality pellet diet like Harrison's or Roudybush pellets, then it could be egg bound. If it is not egg bound, whether male or female, it could have an infection, tumor and all sorts of things.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
