I just got 2 new budgies around 3 days ago. According to their previous owner they were on an all-seed diet ( specifically canary seed). So on the day I first got them . I noticed that Sugar, the dilute violet budgie had some feces( quite dark colored and dried up) being stucked on his vent .

So I decided to cleaned them up with cotton pad and warm water. And Yes I still kept his previous all-seed diet as I cant really do any diet conversion as of now as otherwise he wont eat and I am afraid that his sickness may be getting worse. Also he has been puffed/ fluffed up and sleeping most of the time, throughout the day.

On the third day, I noticed that Jingle, my lutino budgie had underwent a similar issue, its just that compared to sugar his feces is much more wattery.

Is there any vet nearby? They might not be Avian certified but an exotics vet or some cat/dogs ones will treat and have experience with birds.
