Bird Specialists Gulfport MS

Egg binding occurs when a female bird cannot pass an egg through her reproductive tract, due to factors such as poor health, age, obesity, or egg malformations. A related but less common condition, dystocia, occurs when the passage of an egg is blocked by an obstruction such as a tumor or a malformed oviduct.
