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 wee one’s situation, and wanted to help Now if there is blood in one of your bird’s droppings we need to tread with great care. This is because our bird’s don’t have a lot of blood to spare and this can quickly lead to anemia and other health issues.That said, to start we need to make sure it is actually blood you are seeing. If there is any doubt, just take a sample of the blood and add a few drops of hydrogen peroxide onto it. If it bubbles, we know we have blood and need to be proactive with her. If it doesn't, then its likely pigment from her food or the material in the bottom of the cage.In regards ***** ***** for blood in stool, we’d have to be wary of infectious agents like viruses (ie adenovirus, herpes, etc), bacteria (ie clostridia, spirochetosis, etc), and parasites (ie coccidia). As well, we can see these signs with egg binding, gut based foriegn bodies, gut twists, or tumors. And while hopefully less likely here, do make sure that she has no access to heavy metals (ie lead, zinc) or chemicals (ie rat bait, aluminium containing deoroderants, etc).Overall, we do need to tread with care with these signs; even if she seems well and normal (which birds often behave as such until things are quite advanced). So, we’d want to determine if it is just now and we’d be best to have her seen urgently to address this quickly for this wee one before it can take any toll on her.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 (, Avian web( or Birdsnway( take care,Dr. B. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. **Please rate my service afterwards, as this is the only way I am credited for helping you today.
