Weird Budgie droppings
We just got a new budgie named Skip about 4 days ago.
We got him from the same owners (breeders) that we got our older budgie from, Salvador.
Salvador is completely healthy and always was.
When we first put Skip in his cage weve noticed that his droppings are a green liquid, but we thought that's ok because Salvador had the same issue when we got him and now everything is fine with him.

The problem is with Skip, now his droppings (last 2 days) are larger than normal, and look like a spiral, and they are white-cream colored.
We read online that it says there might be an infection if the budgie's droppings look like that.
Skip is eating the same food that Salvador is eating.
Seeds and millet, we also fed them with fresh carrots, cauliflower (we know it's good for budgies).
Skip is 2 months old and his past owners only feed him regular budgie seeds.

If it is actually an infection, we don't have the option to go to the vet because in our country and city there is no such a thing as a vet for small animals, only for dogs and cats and such.

There is something that we could do at home that would make him better? Some type of food that could kill the infection?
How could I even know it's an infection?
Please don't advice a vet, that option isn't available at all.
He drops every 20 minutes.

You really ought to have quarantined your new bird
Quarantine IS Necessary! - Talk Budgies Forums
Your new bird could potentially have already passed an infection on to your new bird. Though just because an infection COULD have been passed on, it doesnít necessarily mean that it has, so please, put your new bird in a separate cage in a separate room now.

Even a cat/dog vet can help. They should still have the ability to test droppings for infection and to look up and prescribe relevant antibiotics. They can contact and take advice from other vets.

What can you do?
1. Prevent your older bird from also becoming ill, by starting quarantine.
2. Reduce any extra stress in your new bird by covering the top and 3 sides of the cage, leaving it alone other than necessary food and cleaning changes and keeping some background noise (radio on).
3. You could try adding guardian angel to help restore electrolytes lost via diarrhoea.

The above points will only make him more comfortable, they wonít kill an infection and wonít cure disease, the best advice is unfortunately what you donít want to hear.
