Hello everyone.

Just to kick this post off, I am going to be booking a vets appointment asap, I just wanted some advice.

So I got Nova 4 months ago. About a month in I started to notice that she had a really dirty vent. I just put it down to the fact that she was really young and cleaned her up. However, recently it's become more of a problem. It's been about 3 months, and everything else seems normal, including her poop. She's eating normally, making plenty of noise and doesn't really seem phased by it. She's 5 months old and is pretty clumsy and mucky anyway. I am aware that this isn't normal but I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience? I have another tiel and a budgie and they seem in perfect health, clean vents and all. Thanks guys, any help is appreciated as I'm super worried. :wf lutino::grey tiel::cobalt:

How is she able to get to her poop to walk through it? Or is she not pooping very well?

She's just not pooping very well. It seems to get stuck to the feathers around it but she's always done it. :(

Has she ever seen a vet? This is not normal in a healthy bird.

Not a good sign... a vet visit is a must.

I've made a new post detailing my vet visit. Would love to hear input as I'm a little in the dark about it!
