blood in poo
We have a female lovebird that is roughly 9months of age. She does not have a mate and is housed alone. she has, since we bought her laid four eggs and we were informed this was due to the richness of her diet. we went onto a website and found a pellet compound and have tried with little success to intergrate this into her dialy food pattern. we have mixed it in with her regular food ,millet and sunflower seeds at varying amounts to wean her from the rich diet and made note of how her droppings change.
She is generally moody and biting and squaking if you try to interact with her.she will not eat fruit or vegatables of any sort.we have noted that she has had a mild blood trace in one movement in the last 3 days and has taken to bathing a lot more than normal and has gone into moult mode. She has lost some body fat and the normal colouration of her plumage has faded. she still plays with her toys and loves her four hours aday out of her cage and otherwise seems the same character bird as when we started.
Please could you offer any suggestions as to what we are doing wrong. are the pellets unsuitable or is there another reason for this blood spotting?
