    I don't know about "fishy" breath. That term to me mean "spoiled or bad"....Do you have any Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar on hand to put into her water to see if that helps?
    Or fresh pineapple or papaya for her to eat...the enzymes in those foods help break down the foods they have eaten if there are issues.:hug8:

    If you can notice a foul smell, I recommend she see an avian vet for a crop culture to check for yeast or bacteria.

    it wasnt spoiled or foul it just smelled like a fish and today the smell went away i called the vet and asked her she asked me what she had eaten and i said chicken ,apples and herbs and her rudy bush the vet said it was probly the conbow of it all and said wait and see if she still has the smell in a couple days if she does bring her in but she said she felt it wasnt any thing to be worried over . and she also told me other ppl have had there birds checked for the same reason and it wasnt any thing wrong with there crops or blood tests just a cause of fish breath . so we will see how things go the next few days

    How old is the roudybush? I find that if it's old it has a weird odd smell.
