    Eating dry poop?

    Hi! So another minor issue with my IRN, Zazu. He picks up dry poop and eat it and sometimes it’s his own, sometimes it’s my cockatiel’s :depressed: As much as I try my best cleaning their droppings in the living room whenever I see it, sometimes I miss a couple. It gets dry and my poop-eater...

    My little birds kiki (female) and zephyr (male) have been having yellow and red/ orange urine! I’ve tried giving them veggies for two weeks to see if it helps (spinach, lettuce, carrot) but it doesn’t seem to help clear it up! They also get a food mix of pellets and seeds the pellets are...

    Strand of Hair Coming out of Vent?

    Hello everyone! For the first time in the 7 years I have owned my Sun, he had a strand of hair dangling from his vent! I have no idea how or when he might have swallowed this hair but essentially I noticed it because he had a little poop hanging from it. He defecated a few times in succession...

    Squeaking before pooing and stretching

    Hello everyone! Recently I became the proud new owner of a beautiful green cheek conure, Manny. Manny is fully fledged but is still very much a baby. He eats on his own, knows how to step up and is a wild man for the most part. The only other bird I’ve had is a cockatiel. With my tiel I know...

    How to clean poop off vent?

    I gave my bird Twiggy a bath on Saturday (2/3) and it seemed to get some poop off of his vent. He hasn't been displaying any problems except diarrhea, which has gone away since Saturday. Is there any safe way to get the rest of the poop off except for giving him a few baths? Thank you.

    Poop on Vent?

    Today, I noticed my little budgie has poop on his vent. I noticed it after he was continuously scratching it with his feet. This morning, he had diarrhea-like poop on his ladder. He has acted normal otherwise- bobbing, tweeting, eating. He is close to a year old, so I doubt if he has any...
