    first time egg (maybe?)

    Hello! I'm new to the whole forum thing. I have had my budgies for about 1 year already. I have a beautiful female budgie and yesterday I found that her vent is swollen and noticed a small bulge on the belly. She has a partner for a long time and I've noticed that he's been feeding her more...

    I found this white colored boiled egg textured object in my Lovebird's cage. One if my Lovebirds has been taken to the vet in the past and has been diagnosed with a couple of things. One being that she had created an egg without the shell and it formed an infection due to that, that made her so...

    Urgent Bird cant get out of the shell! (Sad Update post #11)

    Help! I found a half-hatched egg in the nest box, but the bird is inside the egg and is stuck. How can I get the bird free from the shell? I' sure the bird is alive because I saw him breathing inside of the shell

    Urgent Conure laying eggs

    My pineapple conure started laying eggs (due to male activity) and I’m wondering how long it takes to lay an egg? She laid her first egg 48 hours ago (the egg appeared to be healthy). She has an ‘egg butt’, and she is acting normal for the most part. I’m starting to get worried that her egg...

    Hello again. I was thinking of owning a hyacinth macaw but thanks some kind people, I was able to realize that it would have not been a good idea for neither the bird nor me. So I decided to own some more common macws like the blue and gold macaw. But I still haven't given up on the idea of...

    Pictures My eggs smell funny

    I picked up a set of eggs but they smell strange. Like Chinese medicine mixed with maple syrup. I'm going to wash them with ACV, is there anything else bird safe that I can use to get rid of the smell. They cost me 2gbp for 10 from a UK aviary. They feel good, like they feel the same weight as a...

    No more!

    Hi guys, I´m currently researching and finding information on how to reduce or stop egg laying. My untame hen Aldora is a machine, she never stops laying and it can´t be healthy. I found her on Oct 3 2017 on my doorstep. So she´s been with me a year and 3 months. Age unknown - no ID band. She...

    Help! We've got eggs!

    Oh dear!! We had thought Popsicle was too young to lay eggs, and weren't expecting any since she and our male (Habibi) have never figured out the whole mating thing. But here we are! I've found two eggs, both in separate places, and both smashed. The one seemed to have caved in on itself...

    She Laid an Egg!

    Pascal laid an egg this morning! Unfortunately, it was cracked when I found it, but I took it out of the cage to dispose of it and just out of curiosity, I cracked it the rest of the way in a bowl, and it was fertilized! (You can tell because fertilized eggs have a small whitish dot on the...
