    it looks like blood?

    My female is currently sitting on two eggs, (my male is not in the cage as he had to be removed) today i noticed on two of the perches some red stuff smeared, which i'm worried looks like blood, though it was dry when i noticed it. i've looked in the nest box and there's no blood in there, there isn't a lot either, Indy doesn't seem any different though she has been sitting a lot more constantly than she has been though she only laid the last egg the night before yesterday (she has finished laying) so that is only natural. This is her second clutch and i didn't notice any blood with the first clutch could there be a problem? though i am much more concerned about her health than the eggs so do you think she needs to go to the vets? oh and i don't even know where the blood came from and she's def not still bleeding, and she comes out of the box to eat, drink and strech her wings, she even got excited when i put green beans in her cage so she doesn't seem unwell.

    Does it look like there is any blood near her rectum? It is possible that she could have bled by the expansion of passing the egg. Though, to be safe, it might be a good idea to take her to an avain vet. Is she drinking? If she is bleeding, you need to make sure that she stays well hydrated. How does her feces look?

    It could be that a drop of blood came with the egg. I don't think you have to be worried
    But I'm interested why you'd think this is her last egg? She had only two and most of the times they lay more.
    It's also a shame that her partner can't help at the moment. Why did you remove him?
