Hello,

So my cockatiel (female) is now around 6 to 7 years old :D. However, she had an unusual poop :(. Kiwi likes to cuddle up or sleep during the day like her friends... this is nothing unusual... but I cannot decide whether she is feeling sick and cuddles/sleeps due to that or not:/... I did not change anythin in her diet, seeds, veggies, water; (everything is getting changed and cleaned daily) But I fear that she might be sick due to her unusual poop... Yesterday she had thicker poop but the days before she had watery and thicker poops... She also plays and flies like the other ones... they almost have the same "schedule"... does this poop look concerning?
What I also found out is that she has lost a few feather from her wings (as u can see in those pictures)

So, it’s all been in the last few days? Has she been nesty? Could she have an egg on the way? Sometimes hens have odd, watery poops before they lay.

Yes, around 5-7 days now. She has a few perches (kind of in the corner of her cage) that she regularly "visits"... she layed eggs in early june("empty" and small ones that she didnt take care of... XD) She was really sleepy then, more then now, so I do not think that she will lay eggs... but more so I hope that the unusual poop is "only" due to her being pregnant :(
And today most of her poops (if not all the poops) were watery... but I could not see them (pooped in her cage) just heard some watery droppings within 2 seconds
I think I´ll call the vet tomorrow and make an appointment, just to be sure that there is not osmething (or is something):no:
