It's going to be ok - you don't hesitate to go to the vet. The first time the black poop happened to Hank, I panicked and ran to the vet - it was the blackberries I had fed him. Education is expensive.
Thank you. I'm just terrified of something happening that I don't catch in time and him going downhill. I truly hope it's nothing serious!

It can be fixed - if it is anything at all.

Is he getting black chia seeds and has he had those before? Hope all will be well.

Yes, I've been giving him black chia seeds for months, usually I just sprinkle it over the top of his chop or in any oatmeal I give him. Thank you for your well wishes.

How have the droppings been the rest of the day?

This is overnight and this morning. Should I still take him in? @Hankmacaw

Those poops look pretty good. If you will notice on the top poop, the part that came out first is very dark, but the rest is parrot poop green. In the bottom poop it is all parrot poop green. Both are well formed and not liquid.

He probably doesn't need to go to the Dr. - most likely he ate something that made his poop black. Try giving him the day without his Baytril this morning and if the poops stay good give it to him tonight. A 24 hour pause won't hurt - what day of the 10 regimen of Baytril is he on?

He has 3 days left of the Baytril, and I called Dr. Dixon, got the receptionist, and he'll give me a call when he gets in so I'll know if I should bring him in or not

You may want to stop the black rice and black chia seeds for a few days.

Just heard back from Dr. Dixon, and he said the dark stool could be a side effect of the Baytril, and that if his poop is still dark after he's finished his medicine, to bring him in.
