Default Female Budgie and Blood

Hi there, I have a 2 year old female budgie (and it's only her). This morning when I woke up there was blood spilled on her cage and on the wall (the cage is close to a wall).
She's been in her perch all day, awake and often with only one paw in the perch. I don't know about the paw thing, but apart from it she's acting normal.

There is blood near her anus.

When I was cleaning the blood on the wall some part of it was more hard to clean (I don't know if this matters or not)

It is spring in my country, could she be laying infertile eggs? Do parakeets have 'periods' in the fertile season like dogs, cats, and (some what like) humans?
Should I be worried? What should I do? What other clues should I look?

Hi there and welcome to the forums.

I'm very sorry to hear that your budgie has been bleeding....
For now, it's important that you find out the source of bleeding, since you mention the cloaca area has blood, then the issue may be more serious.
You should carefully check her vent area for any abnormal swelling possibly caused by an incoming egg. It's not at all normal for a budgie to bleed when trying to lay an egg, in fact this can very well mean your budgie is struggling with an egg binding/prolapse problem and urgent action needs to be taken because this condition is life threatening.
If this is the case, then you will have to rush your budgie for an emergency appointment with an avian vet specialist.

It seems like it's no egg. Aluz says it's a blood feather. Would you agree? What should I do?

Ana has provided you with the best possible advice and I know she provided you with the link on how to handle blood feathers.

https://talkbudgies.com/your-budgies-...-feathers.html

If you are unable to remove the feather yourself, then you need to take your budgie to an Avian Vet so she can receive the care needed.

Please let us know how she is doing.
I'm moving this thread to the "Follow-Up" section of the forum.

Budgie is better and recovering! Didn't bleed anymore and isn't pecking her feathers anymore.
