Rapid weight gain in gold capped/ sun conure.
(Port St. lucie, Florida)
I have an 11 year old hybrid...gold capped/ sun conure. Always weighed her daily since I got her...have had her 11 years. Noticed her weight has changed... she always would start her day after her morning droppings at. 114 grams. At the end of the day 119 grams to 122 grams.
Now her morning dropping is not as large and her weight begins at 122 grams. Her evening weight is 129 grams. The vet did blood work...her calcium and estrogen is high. Everything else is normal in labs.
The xray shows swelling and fullness in the abdomen and sift tissues. She never laid an egg and they think this is going to happen. Her voice is higher pitched but behaves normally. I weighed her this morning and her weight now began at 129 grams.
The vet gave me calcium to give her...to help her when she releases the egg. I am still very concerned. I asked if there is an egg stuck inside her..the vet said no.... Could this be a tumor?
