My female cockatiel Willy has had a big lump in her tummy for over a few weeks. We’re worried that she may be egg bound, or constipated (which she has been before, but never this long). We didn’t ask for help sooner because she is acting normal, except for occasionally making sharp tweets and panting like she’s struggling or in slight pain. We can never get a straight answer from her previous owner about her age, but she seems around 6-10, probably leaning more towards 7-8 or 9. Thank you for your help!

if your bird is obviously in pain – and the sharp tweets/panting would indicate pain based on my rudimentary understanding of bird behavior – you need to get the bird veterinary attention.  please, get her to the vet.
