Could Gemma be eggnant?

So Gemma has been pooping big poops and not sleeping by her cuddly, but in her slinky which she hasn't done before. I thought it was bcz she is in a new cage now. She was also hiding under her newspaper so I removed it and put paper towels, which she does not do this with. She was doing that in her old cage too for a few weeks here and there.

I weighed her tonight and she weighs 37grams! I almost fell over. I will weigh her again tomorrow, as it is still hard to believe. Normally she is always about 33 since I got her. Could she be eggnant? Or could a bird ever gain weight when sick rather than loose?

Btw, Gemma is almost 7mths old.

Egg bums are easier to see just resting on a perch But her behaviour would indicate that she's probably going to lay
