Hey everybody. Miss Gizmo suprised me a couple of days ago with a small egg at the bottom of her cage. She appears to have a bit of egg butt going on - but still her usual self, being noisy, happy, eating and drinking which is great. I’m a little stressed though as I know female lories are prone to egg binding and peritonitis (i think thats how its spelt) has anyone here experienced this before and know when medical intervention is needed? How long after the first egg would it take for her to lay another? Im also considering dummy eggs for her so she has ‘babies’ to protect but if this will encourage more laying I will not…. Open to any and all advice please!
