  3. Hi My name is Tracy, I have read the forum for a good few years & personally know a few of your members.I was asked by one if i would post a thread on my pineapple conure egg bound hen, including a few pictures as it may be of some interest to some of the members. Friday i was confronted with the scenario many of of us dread, an egg bound hen.Immediately i brought her indoors, placed her in a hospital cage with heat & humidity & administered some calcium via syringe.I anticipated her passing the egg late that evening. Unfortunately by Saturday morning she hadnt managed to pass the egg.Off to the vet & an x-ray revealed a large egg which was sitting at an off centre angle.It was clear she wouldnt be able to pass the egg naturally & she under went surgery to have it removed. Im pleased to say she is well on the road to recovery, eating, perching ,preening etc ..I hope the pictures will be of some interest to you. Friday, with a visible bulge. X-ray showing the egg Mods please move if i have posted in the wrong section.Thank you.
