    I have a 3 month old green cheek conure and I recently changed him to roudy bush pellets and vegetables and he has been having bubbles in his feces and sometimes the feces part is a rust color and before when he was on seeds it was a green color and most of the time it still is a green color... ( he hasnt been lethargic or anything he is quite the opposite he has a lot of energy)

    What they eat affects theyre poop, the color is probably from the pellets....dont know about the bubbles though. Someone with more expertise will be here soon!

    Bubbly poops can indicate clostridium bacteria. I would see the vet. Clostridium can be treated. Generally the stool is cultured for sensitivity which determines which antibiotic is used. The sooner you do this the less expensive treatment will be. In the early stages it generally take a course of 2 of antibiotics. If you leave it, your bird can get quite ill and it can even be fatal.

    Best case scenario, cultures are negative and it is just something you are feeding that is causing gas.
