please help! My love bird bobs its tail and is bleeding a little bit

Hi. I just noticed at about 7pm tonight that my love bird is bobbing its tail up and down and is bleeding a little bit from its hind end. The bird is only about 14 weeks old and I have no idea of the sex of the bird.

Is it possible that (she?) is trying to lay an egg even without a male or is the bird too young for that?

I'm nervous that the bird might be sick and it's too late to take her to a vet!!

Please help? Is this normal?

thanks!
Julie

Your only chance of saving your bird is to take him to an avian vet. Until you can get it in keep his cage warm about 90 degrees. When my cockatiel was ill I put her cage in the bathroom with a heat lamp and would occasionaly turn on the shower for humidity.
