    egg bound?

    What age do I need to worry about this? My Parakeet is about 1 year old? What are the signs? Thanks in advance.

    I don't know alot about it. But I think it would be pretty obvious something is wrong.

    The bird would probably look puffy and fat! You might see an egg by his tummy area! He also probably wouldn't be too happy a bird either! He would probably be lying at the bottom of the cage in pain!

    I hear it's a very serious condition! So you would have to take him... well really HER, to a vet, hehe.

    It isn't too common in single birds, simply because not all hens kept singley will lay eggs, and it is few of those who do .
    It really is not something to worry about unless you are breeding, or have multiple birds.

    However, you will notice labored breathing, the bird will be sitting low on the perch, fluffed up, and you may see an egg or bulge near the vent.
    Basic sick bird symptoms.

    If you do see this, she needs to be taken to an avain vet asap ):

    Not going to worry then. She is all by her self. I think you just helped me decide not to get her a friend. She hangs out with my cockatiel some times so figure this is enough company. Thanks
