parakeet helpp - lump
by: Linda

What Tracie's message means is that this is AN EMERGENCY SITUATION AND YOUR BIRD MAY VERY WELL DIE. Egg binding is serious and can and does kill a lot of birds every year.

GENERAL RULE TO FOLLOW IS WHEN YOU SEE BLOOD, GET YOUR BIRD TO AN AVIAN VET AS FAST AS YOU CAN GET HER INTO THE CAR AND GO. There is no time to try and analyze what is wrong because seeing blood coming from ANY orafice is serious and has to be taken care of immediately if not sooner.

Hope she makes it, and it depends on you getting her to a bird doctor now.

Possible egg binding
by: Tracie

Please take your bird to see an avian vet ASAP. It is possible that your bird is egg bound.
