Default Different looking budgie poop?

I found this watery poop on Lemon's perch in the morning:


Should I be worried? I'm pretty sure she didn't have any vegetables or anything the night before that would have caused the excess water.

Thanks in advance for any replies!

Hm, how long has she been doing this? I only see pee and urates which could indicate that she hasnt been eating. Have you noticed a change in appetite or lack there of ? Or have you changed her diet in any way?

This is the first time I've seen it, and it was just the single one near a bunch of other normal looking poops. Well, she's been moulting, but that means she's been eating more instead of less. She just eats the same seed every day, no changes.

There is no reason to worry about just the one watery poop. Budgies can have one odd watery poop after drinking water or having a bath (or eating lettuce, or a bit of watermelon for example). They can also have watery poops when stressed/scared. A moult is a stressful time so one or two watery poops in a bunch of healthy poops during the day are okay.
There is only reason for concern when the birds droppings are consistently watery.

Judy, I am positive there is no problem. As Aluz has explained beautifully there are several reasons these types of poops can happen. Budget gets these sort of poops I give him some probiotics and they generally come back to normal straight away.

Because it just started and everything else is normal; I wouldn't worry about it. Like the others said, its most likely fine. My Ivy had that once but that's because I changed her diet from a seed diet to a pellet one.(and she refused to eat) anyway, no worries I'm sure your feather baby is fine

Thanks everyone for the replies! Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's nothing to worry about too as she is still behaving normally etc. I guess I was just overstressing as this is my first budgie Thanks for the information that I'm sure will be helpful to me in the future!
