Well this morning was eventful.

Yesterday Florence was looking a bit ‘off’. We couldn’t put it down to anything, I couldn’t feel a stuck egg and there was nothing visibly wrong with her. We gave her a heat lamp and let her rest. This morning we woke up to find her looking much worse and her vent covered with sticky yolk-like goo. Looks like she was egg bound after all and the egg had ruptured :(

If an egg ruptures inside a bird it can be very serious – leading to something called Egg Peritonitis. We rushed her to a vet (after having a bit of a panic to try and find her an avian vet) and she is on a course of antibiotics. We are hoping she gets better soon
