hello...can you help please?

my bird's poo's are watery, light green, runny, soft! (quite different to what they usually are)

He eats quite a lot of sunflower seeds..i know its bad for them but its all he really eats out of his seed!

Do you think this is causing him to have poo's like this?

Thanks.

p.s. he is fit always flying about and doesnt seem unwell

Hi..just a thought,as you say seems healthy otherwisse, could just be a slight change in diet..IE; slight variation on seed mix..i have noticed this too in my own birds..the store had recently given a mix its usual brandname but the contents differed greatly..

but i'm sure someone will enlighten you to signs to look for in suspected illnesses.. Wink

Birds do not have a bladder and a bowel...everything goes the one way
It is not unusual for consistancy of droppings to vary...they may drink a lot of water or or sat something different like cabbage they are not used to.

Thu there is usually a solid matter with a lot of fliud around, rather than a watery mess,

If it remans for a day or so, dose for worms...invermectin (also for mites) works best...AND REPEAT dose otherwise a resistance is built up.

There is a thread on checking and identifying worms using a hobby microscope....search button above and quick search box to the left
