Lightbulb My budgie is egg bound??

I have a yellow budgie, her name is lemon. Lately she has been acting weird. We have 6 males and 4 females in a cage and two other females have layed eggs normally (5 and 3). The problem with lemon is that she is struggling. Her vent appears pink, she doesnt eat much, she doesnt fly around and is lazy.

We took her to a vet after a lot of days. He said he gave her some lubricant and that the egg has ruptured within her. He said that her poop was blocked too and they took out something. He said that she would get everything out in about 2 hours. When we got her home, she was a bit more active and slept on the swing.

But it has been another day and she is still not fully active, she barely eats and her tail is bobbing up and down, her wings are dropping and she is fat. She didn't lay anything. We are worried, I dont want her to struggle or die. Should we take her to the vet again?

He advised that we should have calcium and add multivitamin in their water. She is the only one who doesnt take the cuttlebone much. Im worried, please help.

Welcome to the forums,

Did you take your budgie to an avian vet specialist? If the egg had ruptured inside of her, then she wouldn't have made it.
Given the fact she is still struggling, it would be best to have her seen by an avian vet as soon as possible.

In order to avoid this life threatening issue from happening, having your budgies in a good diet and discouraging breeding behaviour leading to unwanted egg laying is the best course of action.
The first step is to not provide any nesting areas nor hiding spots on the cage.
Please follow the recommendations on this link: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.html

The vet says that he has treated similar cases and has been successful. The shell was not made properly and the egg was not being able to descend. We give them calcium, fresh millet, bread, pellets and chapati by hand, they gladly come to us

I'm sorry your little budgie is having so much trouble right now.

The purpose of this forum is to promote the best practices for the health and well-being of budgies world-wide.

While we know that some countries still engage in "colony breeding", we believe there are too many dangers and risks to the birds.

https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...s-dangers.html

If you saw a regular vet rather than an Avian Vet, I would recommend you try to find an Avian Vet.
Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma. This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment. This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

If there are no avian vets, an "exotic vet" is the next best as it is important to try to locate a good vet with experience with small birds.

https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...revention.html

I would definitely recommend you take your budgie to a qualified vet for assistance at this time.

Best wishes for your little girl.
Please be sure to update us on her condition.

Sure I will. Thank you so much. When we got her back home, she was much better. And now sleeps on the swing. The symptoms and everything was way more evident before her visit, so i think things will be alright if we do something about it

I just found about a very experienced vet in our city. I'll be willing to take it there and their reviews are amazing.
