I have a 4 year old EE. Molted last Fall as usual, came back to lay in Jan/Feb for just a few times and hasn't laid since. She is eating, drinking, dust bathing, and pooping. She did have a doughy crop issue about 2 weeks ago but came out of that fine with some help. She had been wormed in the Spring. Last night I picked her up because I noticed some dried poop on her feathers. so I cleaned that off for her. While I was doing that, I felt a mass in her abdomen. I was holding her with her head tucked under my arm facing the opposite direction as me. With my other hand I could feel the mass in her belly, not near her vent. Same size and shape as an egg, but it's low in her abdomen - not where I'd expect to feel an egg if she was egg bound. She's not acting egg bound, still doing all of her chicken-y things. I did give her some calcium in case. I don't feel a ton of fluid in there - I've already lost one to ascites (maybe peritonitis) and she's not full like that, nor is she walking like a penguin. What could I be feeling? My other birds don't have this. While it feels exactly like an egg, the anatomy diagrams tell me it can't be. I don't know how long she's had it. She's a skittish little thing, therefore we don't pick her up much at all. Any ideas? Maybe a tumor or something? It's really firm and smooth through her skin. We aren't doing a vet. She's happy and comfortable and when she no longer is, we will end that for her.
