Sunflower (a 3mo GCC) had been a little off today. She seems a extra clumsy this afternoon (she is normally an adorable klutz). Her poos have also been extra watery. They look normal except for the excess water. She also seems to be angry with my husband. He went to work today for the first time since we got her (I'm usually the one who goes to work for hours). Could it just be the stress of hin leaving? Is she just upset with the change in routine? She isn't showing any other signs of being sick. Should we be worried?

Has she ever had a well vet check? Did she eat anything extra watery, or take a bath? If she continues to be more klutzy than normal, or her droppings continue to be off, you might want to take her to a vet.

Take her to a vet. It is worth your peace of mind.

No one here is qualified to give your bird a diagnosis through our phones and computers.

Good luck.

How clumsy are we talking about? That in combination with the watery feces is very concerning.

Definitely vet check time if possible. Especially where she's so young. Sometimes it's nothing and sometimes they're very good at hiding things and need some treatment.
As others have said, peace of mind is worth it.
