I have a parakeet and she has been laying eggs for awhile. I do not have a male in the cage with her. This time I think she is having a difficult time getting the egg out. For a few days now she sits bent over and has runny stools all the time. She is eating. Her bottom looks a swollen. I took her out and gave her a bath but that did nothing. I am really worried about her and wonder if she is egg bound? She is a sweet little bird. There is a plastic bird in there that she thinks is her mate. I really want her to stop laying eggs. What should I do?
It sounds like your bird is egg bound and this can be fatal. I recommend that you bring her to the vet ASAS. The vet may be able to remove the egg. Good luck, vetcare
