Unhappy What is wrong with Sunny?

I don't know what's going on... :-/

Sunny is fine, except this:



I don't know if anyone notices, but it's in between her legs.



Should I go to the vet? Last time I did, Shadow died. I don't know if I trust vets.

I'm scared...

Is it the bump in her lower belly? She looks like she has egg bum almost. Is that possible maybe?

I don't think it's an egg... I don't know, I could be wrong.

I agree with Kennedy... If you do not think it could be an egg , then a vet visit is in order... Hope she is ok!

Lol I didn't know what an egg bum was. I looked it up.

Doesn't appear to be anything serious.

But if it's still there, I'll definitely go to the vet.

It looks like an egg bum to me. I didn't like vets much for a long time but I managed to meet a very very nice Avian vet who isn't that far from me, I never knew he was there! But he's great. You just have to find the right one

yeah, she probably was egg-bound. Egg-binding is quite common in hens who have lost calcium by laying eggs. So sorry for your loss

She hasn't laid an egg in a long time. And she has a cuttlebone. Maybe she couldn't find it.

I feel awful...

Don't feel bad. Birds know what they need and if she wanted the extra calcium she would have tried it. I give liquid calcium to all of my birds, especially the breeders as I'm scared of anything like egg binding. But even on the best diet, with plenty of calcium it does still happen

it's not your fault, honest! These things just happen and there's nothing you could have done to prevent it, so don't feel too bad, it's not your fault. You know, I got a lovely pied budgie before my birthday and I was coming along really well with the taming. She would fly to me, perch on my finger and let me stroke her. I only had her for about a couple weeks or so, and then one day she was out and, because her cage is right next to my bedroom door, I came up in my room and she flew out. Mum always kept the top window in the hall open, and she flew straight out of the open window. I was devastated. I guess you just have to learn from these things sometimes. I learnt to always make sure that top window was always closed when my budgie is out and mum learnt to close the window anyway.

Oh Im so sorry. Don't beat yourself up, these things happen. I always give my guys calcium rich foods, and sometimes a bit of the liquid, but I do know how traumatic egg binding can be, and my vet said a lot of cases do not make it unfortunately
