I noticed this morning that Candys poop was slightly green - it wasnt however runny and was formed perfectly with the urine ring in - just a bit green. Does this sound like a problem or something she has eaten. They have green veg everyday and its always eaten but have never seen it this green. He is his normal self as usual.

 

I just wondered what may have caused this slight colour change.

I would not recommend feeding greens every day as this can cause diarrhea

I give mine greens every 3 days

Just try and give your bird less and see what happens

Boomery, how green is green. Is it the green they get after having veggies or a lot darker??? Merlins poop went a real dark green when he had liver inflamation and we thought it was just from his veggies... but it wasnt. Try giving Candy the veggies every few days not every day and see what happens :dbb1:

Oh right I thought I was meant to offer fresh fruit and veg everyday and I do fresh twice daily, I only give them a celery stick some carrot, spinach and apple. Maybe he had a massive spinach eating session or something because other than it being greeny colour its not diarrhoea.

I have always done this as I thought it was good for them maybe Im best only giving them one piece of a veg a day swapping them around and see if the poop changes, I could understand if it was runny there would something wrong but its not, not at all.

I give mine greens everyday....not all vegies cause diarrhea. I think slight changes are normal in poop colour. I've read that greenish poop is normal for seed fed budgies.

Thanks Bea - it isnt runny or loose at all just perfect formation just green, this only started yesterday and has been green all morning (Ive just rung home) I reckon if its something he has eaten it will be out of his system by this evening and if not Im at a loss as to what it might be.

Occasionally Blinkie does a greeny one...perfectly normal in all other ways. I think you should only worry if it's an irregular shape or really runny. :blink:

Your right Bea - he isnt looking ill or not eating or not been barmy which are all perfectly normal Candy things to do so I guess I will just monitor them for the next few days and see if we get any changes, if I get any more concerned I'll try take a picture for your opinions!

Seeds will make their droppings green as well. As long as it's well-formed and not watery and as long as the green isn't really bright, it's normal. :blink:

Boomery, all the fresh foods you offer have a high water content. I give mine veggies twice a day too, every day and have since I've had them. Veggies don't usually cause diarrhea, just an increase in the urine part of the stool. Some veggies have a higher water content than others, and that will in part determine how much water they excrete. More in = more out. People think that is diarrhea, but it is not. When your bird has diarrhea, the vent will be stained and there is no formed part of the stool at all, it is just a big splat of yuck. If the droppings look normal but have a watery ring around them, it is not diarrhea. As far as the green color, mine do that too sometimes. Sometimes they will just excrete urine with no other part, if they really go to town on the more watery veggies. They range from light green to a brownish-rust color if they have recently eaten pellets. As long as the inside part are formed, I don't pay much attention to them. :blink:

Thanks Rainbow thats a bit more reassuring.

 

Candy has this morning still got green poops but not runny but as you said Rainbow they have a wet ring around them which has stained the paper towel green but the poop is perfectly formed.

 

Ive taken celery out today to see if that one is maybe the cause.

mine had funny poops for a few days after i gave them celery leaves. i gave them some for the first time a few weeks ago and gave them 4 leaves over two days in total. they went mad over it.

 

i have not fed it since because of the change in dropping. carrot tops are a much better alternative although they are quite hard to find in supermarkets. i get mine from the farmers market every month.

They just look like they have a lot of pee in them. Another thing i find is that paper towel is super absorbent which often can make a little bit of liquid look much worse :budgiedance: Blinkie's poop looks like that after a tasty snack of celery leaves.

Thanks Bea,

 

Plus it has been 30 degrees here for the past 3 days which is not normal for England even in mid summer and they have been stuck in the house while Im at work so I guess if its hot they be drinking more too and eating more water based foods maybe.

 

Im glad its nothing serious.
