My cockatiel Bernie:tiel4:(Female) is over 10 years old(I do not know exact age) I inherited her from my grandmother. I've kept a close eye on her and saw that her poops are really runny and watery. She poops a lot, more then my other cockatiel does and sometimes it is small poops and then watery poops. She did get a diet change a few weeks ago, she had been on parakeet seed for 10+ years before I got her on cockatiel pellets. Is she okay?

Did she eat lots of fruits/veggies, have a bath or have a drink before those poops?

Is she eating all pellets and no seeds? An all pellet diet can be hard on a tiel's kidneys. I am a believer that tiels should have seeds in their diet as they are granivores. It's great that you got her off of all seeds because that's not good either but I think a combination is better. Plus fresh vegetables. Also, droppings can be more watery when they're stressed or excited. I think you said you recently got a male in another other post? That may be causing watery droppings too if she is a bit stressed.
