Red bird poop
by: Tracie

If your bird has eaten something red, then you are seeing what the bird ate. If you are feeding your bird colored pellets, please switch the bird to a healthy pellet like Harrison's or at least a pellet that is not dyed.

Your bird's tiny organs have to filter out any dyes and chemicals that you feed it. It is best to feed your bird food that is not dyed and is organic. We have an article on Parrot Health you might want to read to understand this better.

If you have NOT fed your bird something red, then you must get your bird to an avian vet ASAP because it is likely blood.

Thanks for writing.
