It isn't time to post on the form and wait for answers! Go on your browser and try to find an avian vet as soon as possible.
He might have intestinal problems.

Oh bless you, are you sure Harrys male? Just wondering if he's a she and possibly egg bound?
A couple of things to try while you wait if you can handle him is to sit him in warm water, also rub some olive olive oil on his vent.
You have to try & find an avian vet though. Hope everything is ok x

Will do. It's hard as Harry's over an hour away. I just phoned the vet, Harry hasn't been sick since 7am. That's something, I really hope Harry gives better. Thank you x

Worried about Harry and the cost, really hope they can sort her out. I now know Harry a girl. I'm worried on how I'm going to know if she going to have an other egg if she lives this one in the future.

You can try and prevent them producing eggs
But we can help with that once you get her home :)
I have a grey that laid a couple eggs but none since as I don't allow her to do all the nesting etc xx

I did suspect she may be egg bound, she's in the right place for them to help her get the egg out, as Mandi says we can help with advice when she's home. I know vet fee's are a worry, hopefully they'll sort her quickly.

Let us know & good luck

Aww so pleased she home
When she is settled we can help go through your routine and try and avoid any egg laying
E.g. No touching below the head
No boxes for her to hide inside
Don't allow her to shred the paper at the bottom of  the cage (I have grills for this reason)
Try and give 12-13 hours of total darkness each evening (this helps keep the hormone levels down)
No animal protein foods (chicken or eggs ) and during hormonal times avoid warm feeds

Do you feed a pellet diet or a seed diet ?
With seed you will need supplements
And what about a Uv lamp to help her process calcium (it has loads of health benefits and is a must )
I don't want to overwhelm you right now
So Any more questions shout up xx

Thank u so much for helping. Harry will not eat pullets, she eat seeds which also has dry fruits. I feed her some fresh veg and fruit when she happy to take them unless she say no or throws the blow :)  the vet took me about a supplement to get called avipro avian. I haven't got an Uv lamp I didn't know I needed one, I will look in to getting one soon as. Please could you tell where I could get one and how long Harry needs to be on for.
