Default Help! I just noticed this this morning!!

Bumblebee seems to be swollen in the vent area. This happened overnight as they were all bathing last night and there were no signs. I have an appointment with the vet at 2pm. What could this be?!

She seems healthy, other than a little bit of a tail bob (which is how I saw the bulge). She's not puffy and she is eating and drinking and playing like normal.

Looks like there is an egg in there, which may have gotten stuck. It is good you are taking her to the vet. What did the vet say?

They haven't said anything yet. I told her the problem and she said to bring her in at 2pm. Isn't she too young to do this? I don't have a nest or anything to encourage breeding or egg laying and she is only just coming into condition. I separated the males from females two days ago to discourage mating. After I set up the cage and moved the girls in is when I noticed it.

Yes, that is for sure an egg and the fact that she is tail bobbing means she is starting to have contractions and soon will be laying the egg.
There is no reason to panic if she's on a good diet and has access to calcium, most likely she will pass the egg with no problem at all.
You should also see some gigantic poops done by her. Still it's good you are taking her to the vet.
Best of luck with your Bumblebee.

I'm very sorry for this. Given the fact she is young and it's the first time she is in breeding condition (making her about 6 - 7 months old), the chances are high she is going to be a chronic egg layer.

Don't give her nest and let her lay on the cage's floor. This may sound harsh, but in the end it's the best thing to do, to make her as less comfortable as possible and to try to break the egg laying cycle.

How long does this last? After I take her to the vet if they determine she isn't bound, what next? Poor Bumblebee

Then you'll just have to wait for her to lay that egg and keep an eye in case she lays more. Budgies lay eggs every other day and a normal clutch usually consists of 5 or 6 eggs.
Also limit handling her and don't let her out of the cage for playtime. If she bumps her vent on something hard while out, the egg may break inside of her and that makes her condition life threatening.
Limiting the daylight hours may also help in breaking the breeding/laying mood.

They said there is an egg with a good thick shell. They are going to give her a calcium shot. I have to give her a warm bath in a humid bathroom and just sit with her. If she hasn't pushed it out by tomorrow morning, then they are going to try and help it out.

This is the X-ray. Looks like a pretty big egg!

Nothing new to update. She's still eating, drinking and looks normal. She's mad that I put the other three in the other cage to let her have some privacy. Her poops are a little more watery and still large. And she's still perching. Not having any of that floor business.
