Egg bound or what?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 




Hi all,
Hope you all are doing fine, I need your help regarding my red golden pheasant. She is not eating anything but she is drinking water a bit. Sh is in this condition for the past 36 hours or so. Her tail is a bit high when she sits or stands.It seems to me an egg bound or anything else related to an egg. Now what should I do? Any suggestions / advice will be highly appreciated.
Thankyou.

Have you posted on the pheasant thread?  I know a little about chickens but not pheasants. Could she be dehydrated? I would give her electrolytes and vitamins, and offer bits of egg, and the usual feed. Most people check inside the vents of chickens for an egg with a finger exam, but better to get info from others in this case.

Nops..actually she is in her egg laying season. She is not eating anything . I have given her water with electrolytes.
What do you think is she egg bound?
She has not pooped yet except for a white sticky liquid.

Can you please tell me common symptoms of an egg bound chicken and other issues related to egg. What about the tail, egg bound chicken s have droopy tails or tails going upwords?

Symptoms of egg binding are sitting most of the time, going in and out of the nest box, not passing solid droppings, but having watery ones, not eating or drinking, straining, and pale color. Feel inside the vent with a finger an inch or so to feel for a stuck egg. Low calcium levels, too large of an egg, and dehydration can cause egg binding, so replacing fluids and calcium may help. The tail position may not always be an indicator of this.
