My bird has a swollen abdomen and rectum as far as I can see. She is having trouble breathing and will not leave the bottom of the cage. She has laid eggs in the past and I believe she has some sort of obstruction. Please advise.

She needs to be seen by a vet ASAP. Respiratory distress is a sign of great pain or severe internal problems. I work with wild birds but animals tend to downplay their pain if possible. Even a bird with a shattered wing with bone exposed will glare at me and try to fight. If your bird is on the bottom of the cage and panting, she's in trouble and needs help. There must be an emergency vet in your area. An avian vet would be the best but any exam and supportive care would be helpful at this stage.
