My quaker is sitting at bottom of the cage

She’s not going too died is she or is she laying eggs or is she cold


Hi Pamela,

If you think she isn’t well, please take her to an avian vet as soon as possible. If she is puffed up, breathing hard, straining, bobbing her tail up and down – these are all signs that something is wrong. It could be an egg but she could just be sick. She needs to be seen by a vet right away if she is sick or egg bound.

Take care,
