Taking to Vet while sitting on her eggs
My sun conure has been plucking her feathers. She was doing it last spring and I took her to the vet. He didn't see any medical signs that something was physically wrong with her. We sprayed her and was able to stop her from picking. However she started up again and I can't get her to stop.
She laid two eggs (She's single - no male bird) and I noticed her picking her feathers while sitting on her eggs. (She does have chew toys and rope that she has on the bottom of her cage like a nest).
I called the vet and they want me to bring her in. My concern is how traumatic will it be to take her off her eggs for that long? Has anyone had to do that before? She comes out for me for a minute or two before returning to her eggs. When I called the vet's office, I did mention my concern about taking her off her eggs. I didn't get to talk to the actual vet, but who I was talking to said as long as they aren't fertile, it should be fine????? I really don't want to stress her any more.
