Hi guys,
I wasn't quite sure where to post this question, but can a female bird get "egg bound?" I've had a female budgie for about 6 years now and she's never laid an egg or shown signs of having a egg in her. I even kept 1 male with 2 female budgies in the same cage before the male and other female died. I don't know if female budgies are supposed to lay eggs even if they aren't fertile. I can find no information online about female birds of any species getting "egg bound" but know females can lay eggs even without a presence of a male bird. I had a cousin over recently who said her aunt's female cockatoo died from becoming egg bound. This scared me! What is it and is it something I should be concerned about happening with my little girl? What are signs of it happening? What do I do if it does happen?
Thanks for any info you might have!
