Recently I bought my budgie a toy which is dyed with safe food based color... After a few days now I've seen the white part of my budgie's feces have a tint of pink in it... I'll attach the picture of the toy along with this... Please tell me if I should remove this toy or is it sounds concerning?

Are you able to post the pictures? Has he/she eaten anything red such as berries?

What colour is the toy? That'll likely be the link. Food dyes are generally safe. Photos would be good, but they do show in the poops. You're probably seeing it in the urates after it's leeched from the faeces.

Thank you... The toy color is bright red.

That makes sense. I think that's all it is and there's no need to worry any more.
