    Hi guys,

    I wanted to ask what everyone think about his posture. I suspect that my 4 month old Quaker might be sick. He’s having watery poops. So I have cut down on apples and veggies a little. It has changed his poop a bit.


    Now my concern is that I’m worried that a lot of online posts say that a sick bird will be fluffed and it’s tail feathers loose.

    He is a Quaker and is molting. What do you guys honk? He is also breathing fine.

    Molting can sometimes be stressful on a bird's system but if he is sitting fluffed and his activity level has decreased then a visit to the vet would be recommended.
    Hope he will be OK. What does you gut tell you regarding your Quaker?

    Hi,

    His activity level is still pretty strong, and loves to fly, jump and quak! But his poop has not been the best. I had him taken to the vet 2 weeks ago and his full body exam was good. But, i'm not sure how often i should take him to the vet. I was thinking from someones experience that if it would be helpful to know whats happening. The only thing is that is that he runs away from water. but has watery poops.

    everything is just so confusing.

    Some veges and fruit can make very watery poop. It takes cheeky a few hours to firm up after apples, corn, and blueberries. She also sits fluffed up a lot in the morning especially, but she's just resting or dozing. That can be a sign of illness though so watch for any other symptoms or if she stays that way and isn't active or eats less.
