Bird booty looks wider and is losing hair

My parakeet rareclip bird's booty is losing hair and looks like she has a wider opening there? She eats a lot too. Is she sick?

Bird died, maybe egg bound
by: Tracie

It is very possible your bird was egg bound. To prevent that in the future, if you get another bird, please feed your bird about 70% high quality pellets like Harrison's or Roudybush pellets.

Our avian vet says that in over 30 years of practice, he has never seen a bird egg bound that was on Harrison's pellets.

ThAnk you Tracie

Birdie past today. I didn't have the funds to take her to a vet. I think it was a tumor. I bathe her and she had a swell looking brown ball inside her booty. When she bend over eatting, it showed. I think her immune system was low, her heart was beating really fast when I took her out the bird bath. She past out in her cage, I caught her before she fell. I miss her so much. Rest in peace birdie. I love you.

Parakeet with expanding vent
by: Tracie

The only way to determine why this is happening, is to take your bird to an avian vet. The bird could have a prolapse, an infection, a tumor, or something else.

You can't treat what you don't know is wrong, and you can't get a diagnosis or treatment with seeing an avian vet.

Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird.
