If your pretty bird only poops purple after eating a plum you have nothing to worry about. Their digestive system is very small so undigested food often reflects the color of the food eaten. I often feed my bird red peppers which he loves. His poop is red for a time. Also when I feed him a piece of walnut it will be a touch of brown.

Keep an eye on his poops. It should return to normal.

Best to you and yoru indian ringneck!
