Default Is a dirty vent a genetic thing?

On a female budgie that was given to me a yr ago, she seems to always have a dirty vent, and my friend took her to the vet and said it was perfectly normal, the thing is that i bred her with a bird and well 4/5 of the babies that came out like the mom same mutation on both clutches, she had 5 babies on the 1st clutch and another 5 on the second and they are about 3-4 months old and they still get their vents really dirty as if they have diarrhea but they don't, does any one think its genetic?

If they are english budgies then yes They were bred to have longer fuller feathers which includes the vent ones, and this can make it easier for poop to get stuck.

Hmm, well if the vent feathers are not very long I would not think it had anything to do with genetics unless it is some kind of internal problem.
