A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Lennie has been producing bundles of poop.
For about a week his poop would build up & at intervals a little bundle of 3 or 4 would drop. One morning, I noticed that none of his poops had dropped overnight & he had an enormous bundle stuck to his bottom. He was trying to remove it himself but pecking at it & kicking back at it with his foot was not budging it. I decided that an intervention was needed.
I prepared what I thought would be needed, cotton wool, warm water, savlon/vaseline.
Poor darling – I had hoped I would be able to prise it off pretty quickly, but it was stuck fast. It needed quite a bit of soaked cotton wool to soften it enough to release it. It came away in one big bundle. There was one small piece left behind that needed a bit of extra work. It was stuck to a feather & I considered getting the scissors to cut it off but fortunately a bit of extra water managed to set it free.
Lennie was a bit put out by the ordeal & needed some time to recover, but the good news is that since then his poop has been falling free.
