    i dont know what to do

    We adopted a little canary that fell on my grandpas store back in January, but ever since the things have gone downhill. At first, during his first week, he had a few barely noticeable symptoms that there was something wrong, very small tail bobbing, sometimes he would open his beak to...

    Hi all, new here! I have a 13 year old ringneck dove that has a swollen vent. I took her to the vet a few days ago and she’s on 3 medications for the next 2 weeks.

    Urgent Thick clear mucus just released from her vent

    Hi all, Very scared right now. My little canary, who lives on her own with no other bird around, is going through her regular seasonal hormones. She's never laid an egg before, but has the typical hormonal behaviour. She's been incredibly active and her normal self, but she just sat on her...

    Urgent Possible swollen vent

    Over the past day or so I’ve noticed my sun conure (13 years old) vent looks strange. Now I don’t know if maybe I just never noticed it but I’ve noticed his vent is more visible and looks possibly swollen/prolapsed. Anyone tell me if I’m just crazy or should be concerned? I do have him...

    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...

    Possibly sick?

    My parakeet has been having poop stuck to his vent for almost a week. It started off as diharrea, which was a one night only thing. He started to lose more feathers since yesterday (2/7) and I have to bribe him with millet now to get on my hand, which never happened when I initially got him. My...

    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...
