Default Soft poop from fresh veggies.

I had no idea there were so many pictures of budgie poop online!

My little Calcifer had watery soft poop after I fed him green beans. It fitted the description I saw online for post-veggie poop (it still had distinct firm and watery parts) but it went on for two days after the veggie meal ended. He had no other symptoms, he's been eating his seeds and no there are no changes to behaviour, doesn't have stains near his vent, etc.

I made a vet appointment but this morning his poops are back to normal again so I don't think I'm going to take him in after all.

Is it possible for a meal of greenbeans to affect him for that long? Two days?

I'm going to keep a close eye on him but I'm hesitant to feed him any veggies in the meantime, just in case there is anything else wrong.

He's still a baby - got his baby feathers on his head. I've had him for two weeks now, he's in quarantine. I feed him mostly the standard budgie seed mix at the moment. My other budgies get a lot of greenbeans and leafy veggies, but I'm nervous about this with him now.

Any advice appreciated.

(I'm having such excellent luck in taming him! He now jumps on my hand in the cage and demands that I rub his neck and head. He's a sweetheart.)

Recently purchased budgies who are in the process of settling in to their new home can have some watery poops due to stress.
Just like with veggies, when drinking water/bathing the first couple of poops will also be more watery.
The fact that Calcifer is eating well and behaving normally is a great sign.
If he continues to do well, later on you can take him to the first avian vet appointment for a general check up.

Good luck!

Thanks!
I did wonder if stress could be an issue.
