(Michigan)

Hi my name is sam, I have a four year old parakeet name Bluebarry. He has a beautiful blue belly, but when I got home I saw that he had purpleish-red feather tips under his belly and that his belly is wet. I was wondering what would cause him to have this.I would really like to know. please and thank you. From, Sam

Find an Avian Vet ASAP

It sounds like you are describing blood on your bird. Dr B can not help with this, your bird needs to be seen in person ASAP.

It is possible that your bird is a female and is egg bound. It is possible that your bird has a tumor or an infection if it is a male or female.

Please find an avian vet asap. Below is a link to help you find an avian vet if you do not have one.
