Default Continuous pooping and diarrhea?

Kowhai has been his normal happy self this morning, and as I was holding these past ten minutes he had a regular poo, which was fine, but then immediately after he had a runnier poo, and then immediately after that a runner one and then another that was pure liquid. I'm going to try to make a vet appointment ASAP (but hubby has the car at the moment at work), but otherwise he seems fine. Any ideas in the meantime? I've never seen a bird poop one right after the other after the other.

Currently he is bouncing around chirping and playing and full of energy.

Did he take a bath right before or drink a lot of water? That can happen after either of these events as during bathing they often ingest a lot of water.

How is he now? Is he acting normal, and has it happened again?

(I apologize if I'm over-reacting, I'm a very over-worrying birdy mum. >.<) He hasn't had a bath, I didn't notice if he drank any water (though he very well might have when I was out of the room).

He's had 3 poos since, mostly pure yellow liquid.

But he's acting perfectly normal and full of pep.

Could it be something he ate, like a new veggie?

He hadn't had any food for the day yet (aside form any pellets he might have eaten in his cage), so water should be the only cause...?

I would change the paper in his cage so you can keep track of any new droppings he has and monitor him for a few hours and see if anything changes. If it doesn't happen again and he seems fine otherwise, it's fine to keep watching him and not worry about a vet visit.

Keep us posted on how things go!

Budgies eat very frequently and need food available continually. If he's not eating at all something is seriously wrong. If he's eating pellet, he still should have access to a good seed mix along with veggies (although I'd hold back on vegs for now). Take poop samples along for the vet.

He seems to be perfectly normal and his poops are fine again.
I'll keep him supervised and let you all know if there are any changes. Thank you for helping!!!!

Thanks Philw! He is eating and does have pellet available 24/7, fruit and vege throughout the day and seed offered morning and evening - but when this happened it was just before I got him his vege breakfast, so that's what I meant when I said he hadn't eaten anything.

Though I do only give him seed and vege outside his cage while I'm holding him and he does his general play.

Now 2 days later, are Kowhai’s droppings still normal?

Kowhai's absolutely fine and normal - healthy poos and all! It must have been drinking lots of water is the only reason we could find for his episode.

Thank you everyone! I'm a very overly nervous birdy mum an appreciated the help!
