Have Bird Questions? Ask a Bird Specialist.
Hi this is Dr. Hill. Can you pick up the parakeet and use a moistened q tip to gently tease away the stool from the cloaca? If you can post a picture that would be very helpful.
I would not be concerned if it is only dried stool, but birds can develop a prolapsed cloaca. This means that tissue is extending out of the cloaca and it can be covered in stool. If there is tissue prolapsed, then it is very important to have him evaluated by a veterinarian as soon as possible. Tissue that is prolapsed can become necrotic. Are you sure about his sex? Was he tested?
a blue cere (nose) does not always mean male. If he is resting comfortably now, then please try to post a picture once he wakes up. You can also take a warm wet washcloth and moisten the area that is around his cloaca to see if there is any prolapsed tissue. This question will remain open for several days, so please post when you are able to evaluate him.
