    THIS IS NOT MEANT TO REPLACE VET CARE

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 stick with her eyes a bit closed and released some strange looking thick clear mucus from her vent. It looked like an egg white honestly.

She's acting normal now, just had some food, preening, general hanging out.

I am freaking out as to what that could be! I lost a bird last year to egg binding and possible yolk peritonitis.

Has anyone experienced this?

Ended up calling the vet! Turns out it is just a deformed/unfertilized (?) egg! Whew. She seems fine!
I did wonder but as I’ve only experienced that with chooks I didn’t want to say anything incase it was not the same thing. I had that snotty poop with a few of my chooks laying for the first time- partial egg with no shell.

Please give her calcium to prevent further problems. Glad she’s ok!
