Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How much blood did you see?

Is she still bleeding?

Are you asking how to get her to stop laying eggs?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
The blood is together with her feces were they are very loose.

Thank you,

Now your initial history raised worries of a possible eye fragment lacerating the internal mucosa. Though if you are seeing blood with loose feces that changes our concerns. Of course, it doesn't alter the seriousness of the situation but it means we have to think about possible issues affecting the gut/vent wall but also issues affecting the kidney, bacterial or viral infections and internal parasites.

With all these in mind you will be very limited in what you can do at home, and we don’t want to leave a bird lingering with blood loss (since this can lead to secondary issues of anemia, weakness, and make them more prone to catching other infections). Therefore, it would be prudent to have her seen urgently if you confirm the cause of her bleeding. Ideally, you want the vet to thoroughly examine her, check a fecal sample +/- a blood sample. Depending on their findings, they can advise you of what is causing her bleeding and what treatment would be most effective to help your lass get over what could be a very serious issue.

Just in case you do need an avian vet and do not have one already, you can check where you can find one at near you at: AAV (http://www.aav.org/search/), Avian web (http://www.beautyofbirds.com/recommendedvets.htm), Lafeber database (http://lafeber.com/pet-birds/find-an-avian-vet/) or Birdsnway (http://www.birdsnways.com/birds/vets.htm).

All the best,

Dr. B.
