Hello! I just got a new budgie today from the store and i saw that her poop is completely white. Also, she is dirty in the area where she poops. I don't know if it's normal for some birds, when I got my first budgie he was completely ok and didn't had any problems. The nearest vet that treats birds is at 40km, and because I just got her today I don't wanna stress her even more with the moving and road etc. What should I do?
Your budgie is stressed right now and needs time to settle in. Once she calms down and begins eating and drinking normally, then her poop will most likely go back to normal.
Additionally, when she preens, she'll clean herself up near her vent.
In the meantime, put the cage against a wall and cover it the top and three sides of the cage.
This will help her to feel more secure.
When you talk to her, move slowly and calmly and always talk to her in a calm, soothing voice.
