I had setup my breeding pair about 2 weeks ago and everything was looking fine they started mating in 3 day's and the female spends most of the time in the nest box. but recently i have noticed that the female is plucking her vent feathers, she isnt showing any signs of egg binding and is spending 2/3 of the day in the nestbox her poop is huge just like usual and isnt watery or abnormal , she doesnt sit on the floor I have breed budgies before and know what im doing i just find this strange because my last breeding pair layed fertile egg's 5 day's after mating
I have found a bird in my flight with what looks like a blocked vent. Is a hen that was in a nest box for six weeks with no success.(Did not lay) has been back in flight for 2 weeks. Have cleaned up around the vent that was caked solid with some moist poo underneath. It looks like it is trying to poo but cant get it out. has been in hospital cage for 3 hrs and there is no poo on floor. Vent looks inflamed. Not sure what action to take with this 1. any ideas other than a Vet visit. thanks Paulie
