HELP: Eggbound lovebird...(URGENT)

Post by Dave Qui » Tue, 11 May 1993 19:45:45



One of my lovebirds is (almost certainly) eggbound - sitting with
eyes closed/tail up/panting.

I understand that this is very serious and if nothing happens soon she
will be going to a vet.

Obviously I would prefer to avoid stressing her like that if at all
possible.

I would be extremely grateful for any advice etc.

btw, This will be her first clutch - so I would expect it all to be a
bit troublesome.

Thanks in advance,

Dave

I would just like to thank all those who replied to my message saying
'TAKE IT TO A VET!".

To reassure everyone, the bird was taken to a vet minutes after I posted
the message.

He said that she wasn't eggbound. Naturally that takes a weight off my
mind, but doesn't explain the sick behaviour (eyes half closed; panting etc)

If anyone has any bright ideas what might be the matter I would be delighted
to hear them.

If you can notice that a bird is eggbound rather early, a heating pad under
the cage will usually help, assuming that she is sitting on the bottom of the
cage.  If she is panting on a pearch, a warm room will also help.  Failing that
you will need to take her to a vet.

To those I didn't get chance to reply to personally, thanks for your help
and advice.

The bird is now sitting on 3 eggs which probably means there are a few more
to come.

Isn't parenthood wonderful ???   :-)
