Keep an eye on her poop because hard poops that create noises are the first signs of an obstruction in the gut. It is not normal for a bird to be constipated and either points to an obstruction or improper feeding or both.

Never feed your bird any people food as they have lots of fat, sugar and salt all of which will kill your bird. Feed ONLY organic high quality pellets like Harrison's which are sold here along with several others. All seed diets and diets that have a lot of other junk in them will cause all manner of digestive upsets.When feeding the organic pellets, feed only the dark green, orange and yellow veggies, and make sure they are certified organic as the stuff found in most groceries is more chemicals than veggies. Fruit and/or veggies need be only 10-15% of overall diet, which means small amounts a few times a week.

If you see any more hard poops or straining, you must take your bird to an Avian Vet in your driving area to be checked for infection or an obstruction. Obstructions can be toy pieces that are too small for your bird, pieces of other foreign matter they have eaten while in or out of cage.

If she has not been checked out by an Avian Vet in the last year, now is the time to take her in for a checkup to make sure all is well.
