Its so stressful,
I just got off phone with vet.
Because she is not straining. Her vent is clean and normal. She is eating, tho less than normal, is active. Poops are completely formed and normal. We are waiting till morning to see if action is needed. Please let her lay the egg tonight!!! Please please!!!@


All I can say is that you should follow your instinct--- I have a very good avian vet and I beat him to the punch 2x based on Noodles' behavior (none of which triggered major flags). We finally were in for prostaglandin after she took too long. At the same time, she did manage to lay on her own after her 2nd clutch, but many similar behavior indicators were present. The first time though, was much scarier.

I feel ya - Tee laid 8 eggs this time and I stressed through every one of them. She is responsible for all the recent grey hairs that I developed. We’re going for her next Lupron on Friday. I’m glad you have a great vet to get support from and she’s easy to reach!

Mystery egg....so around midnight I heard the clunk, I had just been praying and felt so thankfully. Then I heard a second clunk. I figured she laid 2...but didn't get out of bed to check.

This morning no evidence of any eggs anywhere .

Did they fall out if cage dogs ate them ? Did she eat them????
I got her out and felt. I can't feel any egg anymore! I will re heck everything after breakfast and coffee! This is crazy!

Phoebe is eating breakfast with gusto. .just watched her poop and checked it its normal. Yippie
Did video with vet . She thinks all good , somebody ate tge egg

I more than you to infinity! I hate not knowing @@@

I didnt weigh her yesterday. But today she is her normal if 95 grams. Before tge egg/s she had jumped to 116 Ugh I will be following my own advice to weigh daily when ever there are issues! Cuz then I would know if she laid an egg overnight! Dang it I talk about how important weighing your burd all the time!

She has had a growth spurt, and now feels a little thin. She has also finally after 5 months molted out 2 of her cut flight feathers. Yippie! I can't wait till she can really fly

was the egg large enough to fit in your bird's beak? Could she have stashed it somewhere up higher? Noodles once tried to put hers in a toy.

The first egg fit inside a plastic water bottle cap in diameter but was longer.

I have searched everywhere! I felt her up again no egg.

I hsve a hoover dog who eats anything the parrots throw out. That's my best guess. First clunk hut cage second msbe it rolled our fell on floor???

Zero evidence. But yesterday it was just about poking out of vent...there was definitely sn egg..

I will check her toys as I didn't think of something so weird as stashing lol
Nope no egg

Man, Laura, you need a break! I hope against hope that Bumble never decides to lay eggs. She’s 4-so far so good. Please don’t remind me about Scott’s Gabby who was a boy for 30 odd years until she laid her first one!!
