Eggbound Jade

One of my little rescue parrotlets is having some girlie issues.  She definately has an egg inside her needing to come out.  This gal has never laid since I have had her and its been 3 years.   Her little bottom is extremely swollen with that egg, yet she hasnt laid it, nor does she seem to intend to lay.  She hasn't been nesting, I gave her materials in the bottom of her cage so she could if she wanted.  She doesn't yet seem to be in peril or straining, but having never had a girl hold an egg for so long, I am concerned.  So we are on birdie watch today.   I really hope she can pass this herself and vet intervention is not needed.

Please think good egg laying thought for my little gal.
