Yellow headed Amazon - swollen vent
(St Pete Fl)
My Yellow headed amazon has swelling around her vent and is still pooping normal and eating fairly well. But she seems to be trying to push as if to lay a egg. The swelling started 12-14 hours ago. How long does it take to lay a egg. Do you think this is what is going on I haven't had her that long and don't know her age.
She was abandoned and it is my first bird and I am freaked out. My vet says give it a couple of days and if she doesn't lay a egg to bring her in and it will have to be removed. It's not red or anything like that just swollen and she is pushing alot.
