I have a budgie names Ralph and today I have noticed that his poops are very runny. He is one year old and he shows no signs of illness except for his droppings. They are normal green coloured with some white in most and the only difference is that the entire dropping is very watery. His vent (His behind not sure if thats correct) has no feces or urine on/around it and he seems his normal self talking away, playing with toys and flying around the bird room. His water and food were changed 3 days ago and everyday he is fed grated carrot and birdy bread aside from his zupreem pellets, I first thought it was because of the carrots but it would be very unlikely because he has eaten this everyday since I got him 1 year ago... Is there anything other reasons why this would be happening? Stress could be one because we did have guest with a young child yesterday that starteled him and also the semi smoky air from forest fire smoke that has drifted down. I am very unsure of what to do and it would be a big help if someone can help me find out what is happening thank you so much! Sorry for my bad writing i was in a hurry.

He also has pin feathers... are they affected by moulting?

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

Normal budgie droppings are black and white as explained in this link:
https://talkbudgies.com/general-budgi...gs-normal.html

Runny dropping can be a symptom of many illnesses in a budgie.
One concern I have is that your bird may be getting too much Vitamin A if you are giving him carrots on a daily basis in addition to zupreem pellets which are fortified with that Vitamin.
Other causes can be due to viral, bacterial or fungal infections.

The best thing to do is take your budgie to an Avian Vet and ask that gram stains be performed to rule out Avian Gastric Yeast (aka megabacteria). If the cause is viral, then medication will not help but if the cause is bacterial or fungal, there are medications the vet can prescribe to help your budgie fight the illness.

Stress and molting can contribute to diarhea but if he's had diarhea for longer than a day or two, it would be best to have him checked by an Avian Vet to be sure there are no other underlying issues.

You are most welcome.

Please be sure to give us an update on Ralph's condition after you see your Avian Vet.

I think, runny droppings can also be a sign of stress. I took my budgie to the vet today and though she's completely healthy (as certified by the vet) her droppings were extremely runny during the journey and while at the vet. The vet said it's probably just the stress of visiting the vet.

Having said that my other budgie who is active and seems perfectly healthy also has runny, abnormal droppings and she's just been diagnosed with megabacteria.

In any case, when in doubt, the best is I guess to get your budgie checked.

That is correct -- there are SO many causes of runny droppings that the only way to be SURE is to have the budgie checked by an Avian Vet.

How is Ralph doing now? Runny droppings, apart from stress can even be caused if you feed too much greens to your bird like spinach. But I guess that's not the case with your bird. Is the poop sticking to the vent? If yes, Ronidazole/Metronidazole are an effective cure for it.

Hi Guys thanks for all of the great replies! Ralph is doing fine now. The runny poops were caused by vitamin A and stress combined. He is doing much better and he has normal looking poops and is doing great! (sorry I took so long to relpy )

Thanks so much guys!

You guys helped me so much and it feels to have people as good as you all!

Love the talk budgies forum

Glad to hear Ralph is feeling better, probiotics are also a good additive for digestive problems ,Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother in it is a natural probiotic that is good also. A couple of drops in the drinking water every few days .
