Blue and Gold Macaw---Dirty vent.
by Robert H. Aranda
i have a blue and gold macaw, i've had her since 12 weeks old---she is 18 years old now. in the 18 years i've own her, has never been to a vet since purchased at 12 weeks old. she seems happy and normal, although she started laying infertal eggs about 3 years ago.
she has not laid any eggs in about 5 months, but her vent is now crusty with white matter, she allows me to clean her vent, then returns white crusty matter again in two days, what do you think the problem is. awaiting your answer, thank you
