    Concerned about my birds poop

    Is this a normal dropping? We rescued a goffins cockatoo 6 months ago. We got her switched to a pellet and chop diet, this is her second poop that’s more white and runny like this. Should I be worried?

    Is this a bruise?

    This week a noticed a reddish brown mark appear on Luke’s beak. The mark isn’t flaky or anything and it looks like it’s flat and apart of the beak. You can see another section of his beak is trying to grow so I think he might have hurt himself but I’m not sure. He does come out of the cage and...
