Default help!budgie bottom is yellow

Hello guys, I noticed my female budgie Kiwi looks somewhat swollen as if she is going to lay an egg. She isn't near any male, but she has laid a few infertile eggs before, so I wasn't worried. However, she usually lays the egg between one or two days, but the second day has passed and she still looks swollen. I checked her and got scared when I noticed her bottom is yellow, something that has never happened before. I'm worried and already made an appointment with a certified vet I just found, but he will be able to check on Kiwi until Monday and I was wondering if you have any idea of what's happening to her.

Kiwi is one year and a half old, she hasn't lost her appetite and her droppings of today have been regular, slightly wet. She has been a little quiet today, which isn't common in her. Thank you

Hi, good that you’ve already made a vet appointment. I personally don’t have experience with this issue, but others who do will come along shortly. Good that she is eating as normal.

To prevent any more problems related to reproduction in the future, examine what you have in her environment that might stimulate hormones. Anything like a nest, or covered space, mirrors, too many hours of daylight, etc. can stimulate this. Not saying you have or do those things. Here is a link with some tips https://www.talkbudgies.com/budgie-b...want-eggs.html

Let us know what your avian vet says tomorrow.. good luck

Thank you for the advice! I will definitely check every tip and reorganize the cage if necessary.

Default Update!

I have taken Kiwi to the vet already and it seems more worrisome than I thought A radiography of her was taken and the vet told me he believes she has a malformed egg that couldn't pass through her cloaca. The part right above her cloaca is indeed shaped as if she is going to lay an egg, but it isn't hard, and as you press it, it feels as if touching some type of balloon.

The vet explained to me that if it breaks inside her, or if it stays there, Kiwi will get peritonitis. He told me he wouldn't perform surgery in such a small bird and that the only option we have right now is that she pushed the egg out. I left Kiwi with the vet and he is going to try and help her eject it, but if he is unable to do so, there is nothing else he can do for her.

I'm really scared, but I hope the egg can be taken out I will keep updating you.

Sadly, Kiwi has passed away. I have no words to describe how I'm feeling, but I want to share what happened in hopes this helps someone, somehow.

This is what Kiwi had inside her. The vet thinks it's a misshapen egg.


The vet was able to help her push it out by lubricating her vent and giving her a massage. Unfortunately, when she pushed it out, she lost blood. The vet tried to help her by giving her oxygen, something for the pain and vitamin B, but nothing could be done. Even then, he told me Kiwi looked alright before the procedure, it was in the middle of it that they noticed something was going wrong.

I'm sorry I couldn't help her, but hopefully, this thread and experience help other bird owners. I'm sorry, rest in peace Kiwi.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing a budgie due to egg binding is so very difficult and I feel your pain.
