Parrotlet belly swollen

I have a blue female parrotlet and for the past 2 months her stomach has been swollen. She continues to eat and drink water and seems ok. I'm not sure if maybe an egg is stuck or what.

Parrotlet with swollen belly

Unfortunately Dr B can not help, because he can not examine your bird or run any tests. It is not an egg, because your bird would be dead if it was egg bound that long. It could be a tumor or any number of things.

No matter what, the only way for your bird to get better is for an avian vet to examine the bird and prescribe the treatment for whatever is wrong.
