Question about Birds
My parakeet layed an egg but the second one is egg bound. What can I do? The nearest vet that knows anything about birds is 200 miles away. Looks like she is in a lot of pain.
You want to keep her warm and in a very humid environment; we get a water soaked hot towel, put it in a clean bucket put the bird on top of the towel and then cover the bucket with another towel. while she is resting in the bucket go to the kitchen and get some apple sauce (hope you have some) get some olive oil or, mineral oil even, Vaseline will do.........heat you towel up again and let her sit another 5 minutes. Now get a q-tip and saturate it with your lube; you may want a helper for the next step.....gently restrain the bird in your hand abdomen down and out; have your helper feel between the pelvis bone to see if the egg is broken or not and where it is. Now gently use your q-tip with ky jelly or whatever on the tip and GENTLY lubricate the birds vent. Now gently use your middle finger and help the egg out by pushing gently in and down on the outside of her abdomen. Small movements is the key and did I mention be gentle. You are just massaging the egg out don't push too hard or you will hurt the bird and break the egg.........if the egg breaks just keep massaging her abdomen until it looks like everything is out. if you have a small syringe and a surgical tube you can evacuate the abdomen with sterile water.
Give the bird some applesauce if you know how; it will help her get cleaned out. Make sure she stays warm and has plenty of water. Keep calcium in her cage to help harden the next set of eggs. Good luck.

First I would discuss a vet, just to make sure
it is an egg bound. You should be aware that Females cockatiels are known for
becoming egg bound. To avoid this, make sure that your birds has adequate
amounts of calcium in their diet.

I recommend getting
at least one medium-sized natural wood perch, one rope perch (again medium
size), and one other type of perch - maybe a therapeutic perch or a second
natural wood perch. Here are some good
examples for your Parakeet.
