A request for owners of female parrots

There is a behavior of female parrots where they push out their vent, and pull it back in. It looks like a temporary prolapse but is a normal behavior.

My avian veterinarian is looking for anyone who will share a video clip of this behavior.

Thanks!

Re: A request for owners of female parrots

Are you talking about cycling of the vent several times other than after elimination?

Re: A request for owners of female parrots

Hi Laura, is it a specific species that your vet is discussing with you?

Re: A request for owners of female parrots

I have no video but I think I have seen Bella do this.
It was in. The shower so she was above eye level. After releaving herself I noticed her vent pulsing.

I would also bet money that I saw Pacho do this to but not sure.
