So, my mom came home last week and unexpectedly brought home two budgies. I was kind of mad at first because I didn't want the responsibility, but she insisted in keeping them and after having them for almost a week I've grown quite attached to them.

Anyways, I've noticed that one of my two budgies is always fluffed up. I've also noticed droppings that are stuck to his vent area--he'll pick them off, but every time he goes number two it'll stick to his feathers. I do have the option of returning him and exchanging him for another bird, but at this point I don't really have the heart to take him back. I'm going to take him to the vet this weekend, but in the meantime is there any way to clean the poop off his vent area?

He's not finger-tamed yet, but I'm able to get him to perch on my finger whilst in the cage. I don't want to do anything to upset him and distrust me. This is pretty much my first time owning a parrot, so any responses is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
