Default Watery poop

I noticed in the morning that one of my budgies made a watery darkish green poop. But now its like a light green now.I think It could be because I changed their blanket last night. It was lighter than the one they had before but it still seemed okay. However, last night the temperature went to around 55 degrees I think. So I plan on moving my budgies to my brothers room tonight. I think its Angelina whose sick cause shes a bit fluffier than Rupert. She doesn't seem that sick though. I put apple cider vinegar with the mother in their drinking water so I'm hoping it'll help her feel better. My other budgie had the same problem but a bit worse and it worked for him or maybe it was just stress. Either way I'm keeping my eye on them both. Oh and I also bought organic strawberries,romaine lettuce and banana. Can I give any of them to my budgies today? I know that romaine lettuce can make watery poop so I'm doubting i can give them that. :/

Also, How long can water with apple cider vinegar in it be kept outside? I usually remove it after an hour.

I'm sorry but your post is somewhat confusing.
Is the temperature inside your house 55 degrees or is that the temperature outdoors?

Is the budgies' cage kept in the house? -- You asked how long water with ACV can be outside so I'm having trouble following your thinking.

Vegetables and fruit will make the poop more watery.
Remember fruit should be given sparingly as it is higher in sugar content.

If you think either or both budgies are ill, then your best course is to have them examined by an Avian Vet.

Sorry. My thoughts were kind of jumbled and I should have wrote them more clearly. I meant at night it reached around 55 degrees outside. My budgies are kept indoors. However, their in the basement level of our house next to my room. It can get a bit more colder down here than upstairs.

I asked how long ACV can be kept out because I remember reading that if you add vitamin or something else in the water bacteria can grow.Also,I plan on taking them to see the avian vet around early October. If i see any signs that shows shes getting worse I will try to borrow money to take them earlier.

Its kind of disappointing that I will have to hold off on giving them the veggies and fruit but okay. I won't give it to them.^.^ Thanks for the advice and reply.

Make sure you cover the cage at night and be careful the cage is not in a drafty area either day or night.

You can put the water with ACV in the cage in the morning and leave it until you change the water later in the afternoon.
Be sure you thoroughly clean the water dish when you remove it.
Don't just swipe the bottom of the dish with your finger.

: ) Okay thanks. Their not in a drafty area and have a lamp nearby so they'll be fine. XD I use to use my finger a long time ago when I had other budgies but I stopped doing that. I currently have a soft sponge for cleaning their dishes with. Btw Angelina's poop is starting to look better but I will still keep my eye on her.

Default Rupert vomited?

Today I noticed yellow watery poops in the morning. Dont know if it was Angelina or Rupert. At first I thought there was yellow poop cause I moved them causing them stress or the colorful seeds they like to eat.I put ACV in their water but I think he needs to see an avian vet. The yellow poops stopped for now but I'm worried cause I saw Rupert do something weird a moment ago. He was bobbing his head next to Angelina and than started moving his head left to right quickly. He was eating before he did it but I heard seeds falling onto the tray and saw some(2 seeds)get on the blanket. He also made clicking noises while moving his head up and down. He doesn't do this alot because I haven't noticed it until now. My mom says maybe a seed got stuck and he had to get it out. She also said that birds are different than dogs and cats and I'm worrying too much. I hope this really is a one time thing. I want to take him to the vet but I don't have the money yet. Will see what I can do. Nvm about the borrowing money part. My parents don't care so ill have to just keep an eye on them. I get the money in a few days but theres not much I can do.All this thought of vomiting is starting to make me feel nautious too. :|

I'm sorry your Rupert is feeling under the weather. From your description it does seem that Rupert has vomited. Be sure to closely monitor him, if the poops look off, you notice a decrease on appetite and activity levels and a repetition of the vomiting, then you will have to book an appointment at the avian vet for a correct diagnosis and treatment plan. Depending on how his condition progresses, you may need to take him sooner.
Till then, you can cover the cage on 3 sides with a warm blanket and soak millet spray on electrolyte solution.
This will hopefully give Rupert a little boost: https://talkbudgies.com/your-budgies-...te-recipe.html

It's truly unfortunate that you don't have your parents support when it comes to providing medical care to your budgies whenever they need it and unless this changes in the near future, you may need to make a very difficult decision when thinking of Rupert and Angelina's long-term health care.

I'm wishing your budgie boy a steady and full recovery.

Okay. Thanks for the reply ill do what you said to do. Hes very active right now and is still eating. His poops weren't yellow but a kind of dark green when I uncovered their cage in the morning. I'm still watching him but I'm still determined to get the money somehow if he needs it sooner. I know its important to keep an emergency fund too but I don't have a job right now. But I'll most likely get one after I finish my classes.

I've merged your two threads regarding your budgies' health into one as to me they seem to be an ongoing issue.

I'm wishing little Rupert a full and speedy recovery.

aluz has offered you excellent advice.

I do encourage you to do your best to start an emergency fund to finance any upcoming Avian Vet expense.
You can use any money you can earn doing chores, that you receive as gifts for birthdays or holidays, etc if you don't have an actual job at this time.

Okay. Thanks Faery. ^.^

Update:
:/ I bought the electrolyte solution from the pharmacy but they didn't have Pedialyte brand. They had this(Super suero oral electrolyte solution) but the unflavored version which I bought. Is it okay to give it to my budgie?In the directions it says do not add water and that the ingrediants areWater,Dextrose,Citric Acid, Potassium Citrate,Sodium Chloride.Sodium Citrate,Sucralose,Acesuflame Potassium, Zinc Gluconate, and Potassium Sorbate and that Liquid Suero provides(per liter);Calories 100;Dextrose,25 grams;Potassium,20 mEq;Chloride,35 mEq;Sodium,45 mEq;Zinc, 7.8 milligrams.

Also its distributed by J.J.J.
