Abstract

A congenital abnormality, characterized by two fully formed oviducts, is described in a budgerigar. The right oviduct was filled with gelatinous fluid which formed a space-occupying cyst, resulting in egg binding in the left salpinx. Clinical signs and subsequent surgical intervention are discussed.
