Hi Guys,

My budgie keeps getting her poop stuck around her vent, she’s still able to poop but there is a lot of hardened poop stuck there that i’m worried will start obstructing her vent completely. I’ve tried the normal methods of soaking a cloth, cotton tip or cotton ball with warm water but nothing is working. Any other options? She has been getting loads of water through the baby bird food i’ve had to feed her as instructed by my local avian vet. Is it possible to give her a bath or somewhat soak her lower half of her body in water? Anyone who has safe methods please give advice, as I want to avoid going to the vet if possible as it’s not too serious at the moment, but is just a reoccurring issue.
