    she just pooed and it had some red slimy stuff in it.it also had the green with white.could this be cocci? i thought that mostly happened in younger birds.ive had my birds for over a year and none have had this problem...[​IMG]

    Perhaps it would help if you could post a pic of her eye?

    Good luck!

    she just pooed again and it still has that slimy red in it.how often do they shed the intestinal lining? theres really nothing to see with her eye.its not swollen,red,nothing coming out of it.when i open it her eye looks around and is clear.i dont know why shes keeping it closed.

    From what I understand they only shed it every once in a while...not very often.

    How is her eye today?
