You should not use colored paper as a cage liner. Use plain white paper towels, craft paper or packing paper instead.

You should have your budgie checked by an Avian Vet if the droppings do not return to normal in a day or two.

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

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.

Hello FaeryBee, thank for your reply. I sure will take her to vet if is not recover in a day or two. May I know is there a danger of using coloured paper IE old news paper as a cage liner? Many thanks.

it is best not to use colored newspaper as the ink dyes may be toxic to your budgies.
please let us know in this thread how things progress.
Best wishes!
