Why would you think that, has she laid any eggs? Does she have a bulge? Is she pooping? Is she definitely female? Can you give any more information

she did not laid any eggs, she has a slight bulge on top due to tail positioning down, not sure if she is definitely a female, she is slightly darker in color then other, with more rounded eyes.

Just keep an eye on her, If she's eating fine and preening & talking its unlikely that she's egg bound, if she seems to be straining to poop then get her checked at the vet,

Hi
Like kazky says keep a eye On your bird for any changes like half closed eye's droopy wings sleeping more than usual.

Doesn't. Matter if it's a he or a she , if you worried then need to go to vet.

Have you googled avian vets near you , I live in Lanzarote and even I got one here .

as i said you do need to take your bird to a vet to have it checked over you are the one asking if theres a problem you know your bird and sorry if i sound harsh but if there's no vet in you area take him to area were there is one. and it does not matter if your bird is male or female. if you think there is something not quite right. you have asked for advise and my advise is go to a vets.

hi,
i am unable to find a vet in my city, i am stills concern about the body language of my greys, now other grey also have tail in same direction, both are acting normally, eating normally, screeching normally one stands on one foot sometimes.

I think i have to redefine their tail position diagram, i am not sure if it is normal standing position or any concern.

When i look my greys from side view their tails are not straight in line (or aligned) with their backbones/abdomen, there tails are slightly positioning more towards ground from where the joint of tail is (the position of tail slightly like when male copulates).

the tail position is like that second one, not straight like first one, any ideas?

I'm just looking at jaspers tail, under her wings, as she is not clipped, and her tail is like in the second picture. Are your birds clipped as you will probably notice it more with their wings being shorter.

Sounds like your birds are ok and this is normal, if they show no unusual breathing or other behaviors then they are well, what a relief. Can you get pictures just to be sure? :)

What about breeders?

Are there any in your area as they should be able to see if she is egg bound?
