Default Hello all, another question please!

Hello all, I hope you can help me. Iíve got a female budgie who did not lay her first egg until about 5 months ago, at FIVE years of age! Is that normal?

Also, she laid another egg about 3 weeks ago, just one, has been very active, and is now straining and picking at her protruding red vent area. Is it ok she lay an egg or more than one every few weeks now? Whatís the norm interval? Just want to be sure she is ok. She is our only, and thereís no male or other bird.

TIA for any info or feedback!

If sheís struggling then you need to take her to an avian vet ASAP. She could be egg bound which is a medical emergency.

It is not ok that your budgie is laying eggs, from what you describe it sounds as if something may have prolapsed and as indicated in the previous post, this is a medical emergency. You need to take her to an avian vet, if you cannot locate one in your area seek out an exotics vet as they may have a vet familiar with birds on staff. Do not wait on this if she is egg bound that is life threatening.

It does not sound normal. Your budgie needs to be seen by an avian vet or a vet who is knowledgeable about birds asap. Good luck with this. Please keep us posted.

Also, it is not necessary for a hen to ever lay eggs. Although it is a natural process, it is still stressful on the body. Here is a link to important info on how to keep your female from laying eggs in the future.

It sounds as though your budgie may be egg bound and may have a prolapse as well.
Please get her to an Avian Vet and let us know how she's doing.

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 near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.

Default Hello all, another question please!

From the time a budgie’s vent is red and kind of contracting, how long before she actually delivers the egg? Is the norm days, hours, etc. please? This would be very helpful.

Our budgie is not in distress, and it’s been about 2 full days that her bum is red, and she is quiet, & picking her feathers vent area.

Again, no clear signs of distress of any kind, & I’d love knowing how long from the time she’s acting differently with red bum, to time egg drops.

TIA once again! 😀

The answer to your question is 24 to 48 hours.

As indicated in your other thread, now merged with this thread. You need to take this budgie into an Avian Vet right away.

Please let us know the outcome. An avian vet will know how to massage the egg out without it breaking. Otherwise she will die. Please let the vet know it is an emergency so you can get in right away.

Hello all, thanks for the feedback. Believe it or not, nothing ever came of it, & our budgie is back to normal, bum looks fine, happy, chirping, flying around. No egg, no nothing this time. Within a short while of my post, she stopped preoccupation with her bum, it went back to looking normal, & like I said, no egg, & she’s fine.

I did pray all would be well, & it IS! Thank God!
