Hi there! I have a bonded pair of Parrotlets that are a little over a year old. They are parenting their first clutch. My female had a whopping 8 eggs!!! Her 4th hatchling hatched yesterday. So far so good (for their 1st clutch both parents are doing awesome)however, she has plucked a little around her chest/abdomen area (from what I found out that's normal due to the fluctuation in her body temperature not to mention we live in a hot/humid environment to make things worse). But my concern is her abdomen region. She is a bit "round" and swollen looking down there. This has started about 2 days ago. She doesn't seem to be in any pain and she is eating and drinking normally. Her eyes are bright and lively. Mobility wise, she is clearly a tad swollen so I expect a minor change in agility, but she gets around perfectly fine and with ease as usual. I initially thought she was egg bound but that isn't the case since her last egg laid was 11 days ago (I'd think she would be dead by now if that were the case). Through researching, I found that an air sac rupture can happen. That's the condition with the most similar physical symptoms, however I am still a little stumped on what might be going on (primarily because shes acting completely normal). Could it be possible that she is simply swollen from laying all those eggs and the various fluctuations on her hormones during this entire process? I have tried to look up images describing what my bird has going on but have had little luck on that. Any feed back would be helpful. She does have an appt to see her vet on Monday. I am also contacting the breeder we got her from since he has been an abundance of knowledge for us during the entire process of mating till now.
