    Anyone out there have a "surprise " egg show up?? Our
    cockatiel was presumed to be a boy since hatchling, but we
    found out last Weds it's a girl! Since the egg, there's not
    been another. Of course I read up on everything I could on
    the internet. Changed up her diet to increase her calcium.
    Took her to an aviary veterinarian this past Weds to make
    sure she's ok, no egg-binding, etc. She gave her a Calcium
    injection , but since then she's acting sullen and puffy,
    even appears a little weak. All cultures the vet took came
    back negative. Any suggestions???
