Egg Bound
by: Linda

I agree with all Tracie had to say, and GETTING YOUR BIRD INTO AN AVIAN VET IS NOW AN EMERGENCY! DO NOT DELAY AS SHE CAN DIE WITH AN EGG STUCK IN HER LIKE THIS. IF THE EGG BREAKS INSIDE HER, SHE WILL ALSO DIE. CALL AN AVIAN VET IN YOUR AREA AND TELL THEM THAT THIS IS AN EMERGENCY AND YOU NEED TO BRING YOUR BIRD IN RIGHT NOW. EXPLAIN THAT YOU SUSPECT EGG BINDING, AND THAT SHE IS IN A GREAT DEAL OF DISTRESS.

Also, throw away any eggs she lays as these go bad in a few hours, and bird will be poisoned if any of the contents are eaten after breaking egg.

Bird possibly trying to pass an egg
by: Tracie

Yes, it is possible. It might be egg binding. You may need to take your bird to an avian vet.

In the future, make sure your bird is eating a healthy pellet diet like Harrison's for 80% of it's food intake. Our avian vet says that birds do not have this problem when eating Harrison's pellets.
