My budgie has been nesting and all is going well, but i am noticing poop stuck around her vent and her trying to pick it off frequently. She shows no signs of being sick, and shes incubating the eggs nearly all day besides when she takes a couple minute walk in the cage outside the box. When she does this i see the poop on her vent. Any help?? should i be worried?
Is the cock feeding the hen and is there adequate food and water near the nest box for her?
When the hen comes out of the nest box, is she taking the time to clean any dried poop from her vent area?

HI faery good to see your still around. You may remember me, my old account was ParakeetTamer. She seems to be cleaning the poop off, I put a bath in the cage for her and the male is feeding her. She laid her third egg today and seems to be doing fine. Hopefully I'll have some bird babies to post pictures of during Christmas break
