I've just read the last post about egg-binding and I didn't want to add a comment to somebody else's thread so I thought I'd start a new one. I have a 2 yr old PR female with a large golf ball (perhaps a little bigger) abdominal swelling. I have caged her and kept her in the dark for a week. I have bathed her (didn't seem to help), inspected her inside (felt nothing) and inspected the swelling externally (felt nothing solid). I have also added sugar to her water (I was told it could help - it hasn't) She seems to be passing feces (many of which are green but today noticed she was passing milk coloured liquidy feces and the swelling went down considerably. This evening the swelling is back and I can see she is uncomfortable. The crazy thing is she has laid two eggs in the last week (these are in the incubator in case she doesn't make it). I was there when she laid the second and she was audibly straining whilst doing so. I don't know what else to do really. There are no avairian vets in the area. I fear I may have to cull her. Any suggestions would be most welcome.
