    Fiona may be egg bound. This morning, she looked a tiny bit puffed up but ate. Tonight she didnt eat her dinner. She had stuck dried poop over her cloacal opening and seemed to be straining. Put warm water in her cage and gently held her in the water to loosen the wad of dried poop. Am leaving...

    I Rescued Happy 2 Years Ago. Developed PMV due to the negligence of it's owner who wouldn't want Happy back and told me to snap Happy's neck. We over came that hurdle. Next was a issue with Happy's feet. They became callus due to not wanting to move much and we got that nipped in the butt. All...

    Hello everyone. I'm almost in tears writing this. I've had this dove for over ten years now. Last Saturday, I noticed she was having trouble laying an egg. I checked the web for advice and put her in a warm bath. Didn't work. Then I tried massaging the area with warm oil and didn't work either...

    I bought a pair of pet pigeons on January 12th. They bred that night. It has been fourteen full days and still no sign of eggs, and I'm starting to get worried. I have been trying to figure out how long is normal between breeding and egg-laying. I have heard as little as six days and as much as...

    Two of the pigeons I’m treating right now I am at a loss with. One is egg bound and the intestine of the other is not emptying. I am afraid both of them are going to die. Any ideas out there? Thank you!

    My dove Afonso is in her egg laying cycle again. She layed one yesterday night after many hours of holding her feces and being all fluffed up and seemingly tired. Today i came to her cage to clean it and she pooped a little but is now on her perch very swollen, tail bobbing and her feathers...

    I think one of my birds might be egg bound, how could I confirm and what should I do? As the weather started to warm up, two of my (all girl) birds seemed to pair up. I had heard this could happen even for two girls (or two boys). Right before the last cold snap, one of them laid a pair of...

    Hi all, I have a mated pair of pigeons. The female, Newbird, had one clutch of eggs back in August (which we replaced with false ones), but it was at our vet's office, so I wasn't there when she laid the eggs. She's probably due soon to lay eggs (she mated with her mate, Philly, towards the end...

    Hi everyone, Sweet, small, gentle Hen...PPMV survivor...swollen abdomen, 'Lobster Tail' pose, feels like an Egg which is stalled close to the Vent. I spent about half an hour holding her, and holding a "warm" moist cloth up against her tummy there...she seemed to like that. She has a fine...
