Default Blood in semen?

Hello Experts;

I do some search about but not sure what to do. I have two male budgie ( 1year old and 8 months old). Both of them are look happy, chatty and playfull. But one of them (1 year old one ) is much more hormonal than the other one, he is obsessed with my thumb. Sometimes there is a little blood in his semen. sometimes not. Just an hour ago I saw fresh blood again in his semen and also his first poop after his semen arrived. ( the blood at poo was very little )
I'm checking his every droppings, looks normal. But I'm worried about. in additional I think he is getting tired much more quickly than other. he is breathing with his open mouth after flying. But other one looks normal in the same time period of flying. In here the weather is about 28-30 C degrees. So I'm not sure if it's because of hot weather or something else.
And they are both in moulting period.

it would be very helpfull getting some ideas. Thanks in advance

We are not medical experts. You need to take your budgie to an avian vet for proper diagnosis.

This particular body fluid is not something pet bird owners usually see... at any rate, if there is blood coming from anywhere in the body, it is always best to take your bird to a qualified Avian vet, rather than asking on a forum.

If you need help locating an avian vet in your area, please let us know! Blood coming out of your budgie is NOT something that any forum member will be able to diagnose and treat. Please act fast. If this happens to be something serious, your budgie might not have a lot of time to spare.

Hi there,

Are you sure what you're seeing is semen? It could be that your budgie has an infected sore on their rear which has blood and potentially pus. Either way, you must take your budgie to an avian vet for a correct diagnosis.

Please update us after you have done so! Any blood is not a good sign. Remember that budgies don't have much more than several milliliters of blood in them to begin with so blood loss can be fatal very fast.

Best wishes!

Hello;

First of all thanks for answers. But I have to tell that I know forum is not first option for these kind of things. I have checked both of them about every 4 months, Since I get them I take them to vet 3 times for control. But this time it was weekend and I can not find any open vet and can not reach to our vet, so I though some advise can be usefull...

I've took an appointment for friday evening, I'll take him to control to our avian vet..

Actually I'm not sure it was semen or something else but it comes only when he "rubs himself" , and some owners said that is semen. But still not sure, I dont know... But of course I'll ask vet that too. by the way I checked his bottom and looks fine to me. There is no red area or wound or else.

Thanks for replies. I'll update.

I'm glad you'll be able to take him to the vet, hopefully they will be able to clear it up for you.

I look forward to hearing how it goes!

Hello again;

Update,

Yesterday the vet called me and there is a cancelled appointment so if I would she can see my birds. Then I took them to our vet (https://www.aav.org/members/?id=30449526 our vet he and his wife )

Anyway, She exemined both birds and I told her that dudus (one year old one) is so active as a sexually, and sometimes I can see some blood in his semen. and asked her is semen comes from birds. She said yes, sometimes if the bird is so active, we can see. it is rare but can be. I also told her about his breathing problems, she wanted to see x-ray results and poop tests for their regular check.

The x-ray result shows us that dudus's gonad is bigger than it should be because of his "activity", and some fungal growth in his abdominal air sacs. So gonad makes pressure his air sacs and also fungus. both of this two problems make his breath problems. So she advice me that I have to calm his down and also we'll give to him FLUCAN (for fungus medication). One time a day 0.10 ml for 30 days of period, and meloxicam one time a day 0.10 ml for 5 days.
And dudus's poop test result there is no bacterial or other problem.

But accourding to the yellow one's poop result (7 months old one ) he has megabacter. But she said I saw just one big so there is no hurry, but we have to treath him already. So she gave us sodium benzoat treathment for both of them. Despite dudus does not have this bacteria, they feed each other all the time and it can be transmitted. So we'll begin to add sodium benzoat at their water.

During the exemination, They seems playfull and happy, she said their condition looks so well but they have to be treated for megabacter and fungal problems. One month or 40 days later I'll checked them again.

Thanks for replies and good wishes. I also add their photos you can see via link

Great that the avian vet was able to get you in sooner. I wish you the best for recovery of both your budgies. Megabacteria can come and go in affected budgies, but hopefully since the vet only saw a mild case, you’ll be able to keep it under control.

Organic, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is a natural remedy, that can help with the megabacteria. This gives you details here. https://www.talkbudgies.com/articles...r-vinegar.html

ACV is not only for the sick, it is also beneficial to use periodically for budgies who are in good health. The article will explain why. It is widely recommended and used not only by vets, but for humans as well. It should not be used while giving antibiotics.

Good luck.. Let us know how it goes!
