Default Fluffed up and watery poop

Hi everyone. Nice to virtually meet you all. I’m new to this site so I am I hoping you can help me. My budgie, The Hulk, has had watery poop for about almost a week now,
She’s also all fluffed up, sleepy and not acting 100% like herself.. the good news is she is eating lots and drinking water! But I am worried about her because she is very quiet, seems sleepy, and has runny poo... she seems a bit better today than a few days ago.. but the watery stool is still there.. any tips or comments on what you think would be a great help for us!!! Thank you so much!!!!

Hi! to Talk Budgies

I'm very sorry to hear that The Hulk is ill.

When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.
Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.

If there are no Avian Vets in your area, then please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian who has experience with small birds.

The sooner you get The Hulk in for an appointment the better are her chances of a full recovery.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

As FaeryBee has stated, it is important to have your bird examined by a vet and have a test run on the droppings. The watery droppings could be caused by any number of things, could be bacterial, fungal, viral etc, none of which will clear up on their own. In addition, the fact that she is fluffed up and sleepy is an indication that she is really not feeling well. Birds hide their illness very well and by the time symptoms are present they have probably been ill for a while. Is she currently molting?
