Hi,
I need some help. I have had a female Jenday Conure for a little over 3 years now, and I just found an egg in her cage this morning. However, I see that she is till trying to get another egg out. Is there anything I can do to help her? What warning signs I should look for if she is in trouble? Any info would be very helpful and appreciated. Thanks. (As youy can see I did not have time to register, but I will once I get through this.)

Hi, When did you hen lay her first egg?
Birds lay eggs every other day.
If she has gone longer than 3days without producing the egg and you can actually see the swelling at her vent then you will need to see an avian vet asap as egg binding can be very serious until you see the vet add a little vegtable oil to some water and rub a little on her vent and see if this helps her expel the egg...

But an avian vet should be sought asap

Thank you so much! I really appreciate your help. She laid her first egg yesterday. I will bring her to the vet tomorrow or Wednesday just to be safe and cover my bases. Thanks again Mike.

HI, Sounds like everything maybe ok as birds lay eggs every second day and since she only laid her first yesterday she is due another one tomorrow.

Does she have a mate?
Provide her with cuttlefish bone, Vitamin block and fresh fruit and vegtables.

If there is no mate and she just laying eggs do not remove any eggs allow her to sit them until she gets bored this will help reduce the chances of her laying again.
Also move toys and purches around in her cage even moving the cage to a different part of the room or into another room once a week will stop her laying as she will feel insecure.

She does not have mate. I do not have a cuttlefish bone but will pick one up tomorrow. I always give her fresh fruit and vegtables, but she does not like the vitiamns I give her. I can't even tell you how helpful you have been. I just have one last question for you. When should I move her cage and toys around? She I do it while she is still laying eggs, or after she finishes? As you can probably tell she is my first bird, and I want to make sure that she always gets the best care possible. Thanks yet again Mike for all your help.

Hi. You can either wait until she has finished laying or do it after she has had her 2nd egg.

If you move the toys and things around after the 2nd egg then you shoudl remove the eggs while your moving things this is will help her stop laying and things she be ok.
The cuttlefish is to help give her calcium as egg laying depletes there calcium levels.
