Default Diarrhea during night?

Hello, my budgie had a diarrhea (he stressed out because of a new cage) and I gave him antibiotics with probiotics (vet told me to mix them) for a week, now his poo is normal during the daytime but at night it is a total mess. I made a research but came up with nothing. Does someone has any ideas about what is happening to my bird during the night? Maybe he is not totally recovered after the antibiotic treatment?, but if so how come he poops normally during the day? I have uploaded two photos one is taken early in the morning (the night time poops) and the one with the hand is the same day noon time. This situation has been going on since the begining of the treatment. It got worsened for like 2-3 days. He is playful, eats his seeds regularly, his backside is clean no green stains anymore. He seems to look healthy no fluffing during the day. Thanks a lot for any help, love from Mico. 😀

Does he have anything with high water content before bed, like lettuce?

no I haven’t given him anything other than plain seed for like 1,5 weeks now. I’m pretty sure he hasn’t eaten anything like that.

You might want to call your vet about this and my first thought is the cocktail of anti-bios and probiotics might be causing these irregular droppings. During night-time (sleeping), the digestive system isn't doing exactly the same as during the day. Aside from a bit larger with more water they don't look like being sick poop (they are very good photos!), but (to me) may suggest the system is dealing with this "cocktail" of anti's & pros. I'd talk to your vet.

I’m not sure after being sick but have you tried placing a towel over his water dish or moving it somewhere else? My budgie had the same issue and it was because he didn’t feel comfortable going to his water bowl during the day so he would drink all of his water at night.

Generally giving antibiotics along with probiotics negates the effect of the antibiotics.
Most Avian Vets will prescribe antibiotics *only* for a bacterial infection and *after* the course of antibiotics is completed then have the owner start the budgie on a course of probiotics.

Antibiotics should *only* be given when there is an actual *bacterial* infection.
Antibiotics do *not* work for viral or fungal infections.

If Mio's diarrhea was only due to stress then there should have been no need for the bird to be treated for a bacterial infection.

Is your vet an Avian Vet or a regular vet?
Avian Vets have special training and are better able to make a proper diagnosis when a budgie is ill.

I would suggest you talk to your vet about what might be causing the problems and/or seek the advice of a different Avian veterinarian.

All that said, some birds do have looser droppings during the night because they have more water (drinking right before sleep) and less solid matter (because they haven't eaten for awhile) for elimination at that time.
