I have a few questions about Bubbles to help me best advise you.
What age is Bubbles roughly?
Did they tell you that she's had this discharge before?
Is there any smell?
How is Bubbles behaving/eating/pooping etc?
Thank you, ***** ***** color in her poop, is it dark or very bright?
That's perfect thank you. There are a few things that could cause this but if it's intermittent, clear, and watery (as you've said, she's already had a complete veterinary check over) it's most likely a normal thing for her.
At the moment I would advise just monitoring her if it remains this way but she's acting completely normal then it's nothing to really be concerned about.
If it becomes thicker, changes color, starts to smell, or she starts to show any signs of illness (lethargy, not eating etc) then that would be an indication of something going on like a respiratory infection.
If it's normal for her, the best thing to help reduce it is to ensure she's in a well ventilated, non-dusty area if possible and has plenty of room to shake out her wings and preen.
Providing her with a well balanced diet with occasional treats and ensuring she's getting enough vitamins and minerals (feeding commercial pellets are best as a seed-based diet isn't balanced) then you will be protecting her immune system but it may not reduce the discharge.
If you're concerned due to volume/duration etc you can always contact your local vet to have a swab taken for microbiology (virus/bacteria/fungi) or an x-ray of her skull to see if there is any fluid within her sinuses.
You're welcome, you can return here if you have any queries over the next few days, even after accepting the answer.
