Re: possibly laying an egg?

5 weeks with implants...

things are looking very good, but she has been acting a bit hormonal the last 2 days - demanding way more cuddles and attention, trying to get into my shirt again which was not the case for the last 10 days since the last post... we did have a few very warm and extremely sunny days this past week so it is probably connected... other than this I am happy to say that the most obvious hormonal behaviour is not there anymore, chicken is feeling good and acting way more herself again, I'm just hoping it stays this way and that the next weeks kick the rest of the remainig hormones and let the chicko be hormone free and happy

Re: possibly laying an egg?

Glad to see things are coming along...5 weeks is still not quite long enough for all of the hormones to leave her system, but it's getting there. Once she no longer has any Estrogen, Progesterone, or Testosterone floating around in there you'll know it...

Re: possibly laying an egg?

I know and I feel a lot better about it taking time after talking to you about it my paranoid self would love to see it be ok in a week, but we know that is sadly not going to happen

I just thought I'd keep updating this thread for maybe two months or so about the changes in behaviour cause I couldn't find any similar on the net (about what happens the first month or two), it helps me keep tabs on my own chicken and it might help someone someday going through the same thing asking the same questions not really expecting any answers anymore but comments are always welcome

Re: possibly laying an egg?

My bird has been hormonal as well...$160 dollars in vet bills later, the verdict was "no eggs, no blockage, just hormonal" ugh...Keep your bird out of your shirt lol. Glad things are going well! Spring has sprung!

Re: possibly laying an egg?

sorry for late reply I get your frustration.... I still freak out every time Sunny shows at least a bit of a hormonal behaviour like right now actually, she has been a lot more snuggly these past few days... it started 4 days ago when she say a bird outside and almost crashed into the door, landed on the floor and was so scared, I pisked her up and she hid in my hands and wouldn't move... since then she has started to demand to get under my shirt, for me to hold her more or she just is all 'in your face'.... I think she might have remembered how nice the cuddles were and how she hid under my shirt and all that... worried again...

7 weeks with implants... I would really like to see it get better not worse but maybe it's just these few days or something... I have no idea...

Re: possibly laying an egg?

SunnyGirl, how is with your Sunny's regurgiation? Have you experienced massive regurgitation from her before the implants? I've noticed my Cytrynka to do it more and more. I know it's hormonal, and knowing your story would like to avoid the egg-risk at all cost.

Re: possibly laying an egg?

it's been over 2 months ago that she got the implant and we had good few weeks lately... and what does the darn bird do today?.......... drag her butt all over the couch... I'm mad, confused, scared and whatever comes with that.... the weather doesn't help, neither does the fact thatmy mum is off of work this whole week and pretty much went from 'ok I'll follow the new birdie rules' to 'whatever, she needs more cuddles, we've ignored her long enough'

ugh...

Re: possibly laying an egg?

At least we all know who will pay the vetbills this time: your MUM!


Sometimes parents are terrible when it comes to following rules.
Make her reread this topic to refresh her memory how you close to came to losing your Sunny ...

Re: possibly laying an egg?

I don't want any vet bills anymore... it's been enough suffering... I mean I quite like my vet but I really hoped not to see him again till end of may/mid june when Sunny is supposed to get her second implant...

it just frustrates me... just this one thing, thise few seconds and my anxiety is through the roof again I hope I'm just overthinking this again...

Re: possibly laying an egg?

I’m with Christa - remind your mum in detail about Sunny’s egg and what it took to get it out. It’s funny how bad memories fade a bit with time and some people think that it won’t hurt to do it “just a little” - I’d remind her now before it becomes a habit again. Sunny needs to stay egg-free if she can!!
