Re: Help please? My Blue and Gold is laying eggs

So she still has not laid again today. I caught her pushing once but it was only a poo. This time it was a pretty big one, slightly smaller than my palm, and I could not remember if they just have bigger poops when they are laying in general or if that is a warning sign. My vet called me and from what I told him he said she should be fine but that was several hours ago.

She's still eating, drinking and moving around and shes actually talking to me again, she got really quite for a few days before now.

They range from 1-3 so one might be it for her.

Yeah? Okay thats good to know, She just seems to be attempting to lay an egg every so often so I wasn't sure if theres something there or not.

Re: Help please? My Blue and Gold is laying eggs

Birds who are broody (like your girl) poop less, poop bigger. Not unusual.
Best of luck.

Re: Help please? My Blue and Gold is laying eggs

Like Spot mentioned, when birds brood they tend to hold their poop and it all comes out at once make it look huge. They don't poop where their eggs or babies are at. Thus make her seem like she's pushing but she's pooping instead. Just keep an close eye on her.

Re: Help please? My Blue and Gold is laying eggs

if the bird remains in a stressed appearance over 8 hours get to a vet for an opinion, (a different on if possible)
As far as the eggs, my grey did the same thing to me. Just leave the eggs for 30 days and take them out then or if the bird shows total loss of interest then remove them. The only problem with removing eggs from a nesting bird before the justation period is up is the fact they may continue to lay to replace them. Good luck
