UPDATE: So I think my bird's poop has now developed a foul odor. It smells similar cud in the rumen of, like, cows. I went to the vet a couple weeks ago for watery poo, got a gram stain and it came back negative. I was told to just give probiotics, and it seemed to help sometimes. Somedays her poo would be a little more solid and somedays it would go back to liquidy. Anyway she is also molting a lot so I've been giving her egg everyday for extra protein. Do you guys think this is what could be causing the odor? I'm thinking about cutting down on the egg and seeing how it goes.
I'm spending my saved money on getting my rabbit spayed soon so I'd really rather not rush to the vet just yet.
This isn't about a budgie, but my cockatiel has been having droppings with mostly water and not as much poo lately.
It started maybe 2/3 weeks back when some just watery poop. It got more watery but was still the same size and color just not as solid. Then it improved for a few days going back to normal almost. Then starting last week she her poop got watery again. Now it is mostly water and much smaller droppings. She is eating and drinking the same with the same enthusiasm (especially when I give millet). Her behavior has not changed much for the past weeks.
She has been going through a long molt though, could this be the reason for the droppings change? Shes gotten a little more grumpy/aggressive because of the molting, but that is what she usually does. if droppings can change during a molt I might wait and see if she improves after the molt before calling the vet.
What do you guys think.
