    Poop question!

    Hi, I have a 11 weeks cinnamon conure, got him at 7 weeks and have noticed since the start that he’s really good at holding his poop. I’m not encouraging this behaviour. Recently he’s been unwilling to poop in his cage, possibly for cleaniness reasons, he would wait until he comes out and does...

    Hello new to this forum. I have a Caique, around 12 years old. He's generally been more active lately and is always vocal and ready to come out. He plays in his cage and occasionally takes naps with his leg up. I gave him carrots and jalapeño this morning and he happened to have this kind of...

    Gooey yellow poop, but only once?

    Hi there! I adopted a 3-month-old budgie girl about 5 days ago. She is starting to adjust to her cage and get comfortable with my presence, she eats great, and seems generally healthy aside from a bit of dry sneezing (my apartment is a bit dry in the winter and she’s molting). Two days ago, I...

    Weird droppings again

    Last time I talked about Luke’s droppings on here he got off of his antibiotic treatment and that I no longer go to the vet I brought him to for his infection. His poops went back to normal and were normal for weeks. He has been on his probiotic and everything was good and I didn’t change...
