my cockatiel has an itchy butt
just today our cockatiel started scratching his pooper on the bars of his cage. we left to go have dinner at a relative's and he was STILL itching it! we can tell what bars he was itching on; it had white residue (i'm guessing his poop) on some bars.
he doesnt stay in his cage all day. we let him free around the living room and has a particular lamp area he hangs out on. his cage is cleaned every 2 weeks and always has fresh seed and water. occasionally he takes his birdy bath (he's not really a bird who likes water--is that normal?)
any answers will be helpful. thanks for your time. :)
