Good night, one of my budgies has been laying eggs like crazy but they destroy them as soon as they plop out . But recently, it appears the insides of this little tyke (the green one) is popping right out. I can't get a good picture but I'll post up here what I've taken. The bird is about 4 to 5 years of age. Let me know what you think.

Do you have an avian vet? Does it look like an egg that won't come out, or part of her internal organ(s)? In either of those cases, an avian vet would be needed asap. The staff can give you more advice, but while waiting for replies here try to get her medical care.
Right now, the little tyke is flipping around in the cage as though normal but we both know the final outcome. Not sure if I have the heart to put it down right yet. If she were squawking in pain, I'll have no choice.
The hardest part of owning a pet is making that final decision. Maybe it would help if you looked at it as a gift to her. Your gifting her by releasing her from a life full of pain. I'm so very sorry you're going through this heartbreaking situation.
