Hi my budgie is one month old and few days, and I noticed today that she pooped twice a black poop, so I'm not sure if this is dangerous, however, all I know is that her mom is actually feeding her too much more than others, so I'm not sure if this is related to the poop.
If it's am I suppose to feed this baby something specific?

How old are the other babies?
Are they getting enough food?
What diet are you feeding the adults?
Please post a picture of the chick and droppings you are concerned about.

They are all one month and a week with like 2 days difference between each one only.

The other babies are getting enough food 100%, but what it seems happening that this yellow baby is always asking her mother for more food, so she is getting more food from her.

The adults are eating various of food like carrots, parsley, peas, corn, spinach and sometimes boiled egg and of course their main food is alway seeds

I will post the yellow baby budgie with her darker drop than the others, but it seems the drop is a bit lighter than yesterday. Yesterday it was darker

I'm sorry your little girl is not at 100%. :(

The purpose of this forum is to promote the BEST PRACTICES in the care of budgies for their optimal Health and Well-Being

Locating an Avian Veterinarian

I hope that when you bred your budgies you did so in an individual breeding cage following what the forum puts forth as our Best Practices. 💜
Only the mother, father and the chicks should have been in the cage while the babies were in the nest box.
Individual Breeding Cages - Why is this so Important?

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and all of the Stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
Additionally, please be sure to read the thread "Posting on the Forums" which is linked below.

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.
(Stickies are threads “stuck” at the top of each forum sub-section)
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.


SITE GUIDELINES
Posting on the Forums

At 3 1/2 weeks, the mother should be removed from the breeding cage and placed in an individual cage so that she does not double clutch.
Allowing your birds to breed too frequently is very hard on them and their health.
The father bird is the one that should be taking care of the chicks from 3 and 1/2 weeks until they are fully fledged and weaned.
Before You Ever Consider Breeding Your Budgies

Are you weighing the chick daily?

If the chick is demanding to be fed continually, there is a chance it could be regressing, OR
it may not be getting enough nutrition from the food, may have a nutritional imbalance or an illness
The droppings may be wet and overly dark due to what the chick has eaten or they may indicate an illness.

The best thing to do is to have the chick examined and properly diagnosed by an Avian Veterinarian.
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.
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.
If there are no Avian Vets near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.

What do you do you plan to do with offspring from this clutch?

Sadly we don't have any vet or someone specialist in checking budgies to know if they have illness or not, however, I will take this baby to someone who is knowledgeable at least to have normal check on it and advise me on a proper diet for this one.

It always worries me when they get sick since we don't have a vet, but I will do my best and hopefully it isn't an illness
