I just adopted a Parrotlet. Just wondering what healthy poop looks like. It looked green soft, not runny, was just wondering if this is what poop looks like.

Healthy bird droppings
by: Tracie

Hi Becki,

Soft green droppings with a little white in them is what is considered "normal." The problem is that the poop will change according to what it eats. If you feed it a blueberry, the poop will have a purple or brown tint.

The main thing to watch for is a change in the poop. We keep paper on the bottom of the cage so that we can see any changes, if there are any.

People that feed colored pellets, and we do NOT suggest that due to the high chemical content, will see all kinds of droppings.
