female is egg bound??

Post by 333greenbean333 » Sat Aug 21, 2010 2:24 am

Hi..
It has been 4 weeks since I first saw my male ringneck mount my hen. they do it about 2 times a day for 4 weeks. I have seen her go into the box about 3 times a week but could be more. she does not look sick or anything.. could she be egg bound? how long should I wait till I check her into a vet?

I have not experienced an egg bound hen yet, but from what I have read, the hen tends to look unwell and sometimes a bulge around the vent caused from the egg. They tend to look fluffed up and breath faster than normal.
If you do think your bird is egg bound, then quick treatment is recommended.

One of my pair have been doing the deed for some time and still no eggs in the nest as yet.

As your original thread was started a few days ago, I would think the hen is not eggbound and maybe they were just practicing their love technique early. :wink: :lol:
From all I have read, the hen would either have passed the egg or showing signs of being very sick/death by now.

oh thanks so much for answering! I was so worried
still no eggs yet. But I think its because we have had no sun in adelaide for 4 weeks. haha
I guess they are waiting for the sun 8)
