I'm inclined to think the same way as Jo Ann that it might be a case of AGY. I think Ronidazole if much more effective than metronidazole in treating diarrhea. Is your bird's diarrhea dark green in color? If so, it might be a case of trichomoniasis. It can be treated with Ronidazole (Ronnivet-S) in the water for seven days.
Alternatively, diarrhea can be treated with a mixture of ginger-garlic juice given to birds via dropper.

Thanks for the ideas. I'm going to see how the new medication goes first, my vet said to give it 3-4 days to see if makes a difference.
I've had sick budgies and I've always gotten the Cirpo/Difulcan medications and it worked so I'm hopeful.

Her diarrhea is more brown because she eats pellets. The watery part is clear maybe a bit yellow.

Woops forgot to update. Arpeggio is looking a lot better. Blood test showed some concerns but we aren't too worried because her organs look good and the Cipro/Difulcan has gotten her poop back to normal wetness (no more diarrhea). It's still a little smaller than normal, but she does have large ones here and there. knock on wood hope everything stays good.

Glad to hear things are settling down once more , having this sort of problem takes a lot out of their immune system, poor Arpegio needs to be spoilt and loved

That is great news...thank's for the update. I would look into a good pro biotic to follow up on all this anti biotic use she has had. That and the organic apple cider vinegar with the mother in it will help strengthen her immune system and protect her from infection...

Thanks everyone!

And yep, she's been on bene-bac this whole time, haha.
She finally decided to try eating kale yesterday!! Hopefully it wasn't a one time thing.
