A week or so ago I noticed a soft egg with a long tail- took notice but didn't think much of it. Then my 2 year old RIR became lethargic and pale faced. Wormed everyone, and 2 days later she was the same- so I brought her to the vet (I was already going for a parrot recheck). He couldn't find anything wrong- recommended X-rays. I decided to wait thru the weekend and see how she does (this was last friday). The next day she was red faced and perky and has been her normal self ever since- for almost a week now. Today I found another egg with a tail (pictured) on a box they like to roost on (not in the nest box). Do you think this is related to the illness? What is the "tail"? Part of her ovary?? Tho I can't be sure- but I don't think she has been laying the last week or so. Thanks for your info!!
