Moulting and undigested seeds in parakeet poop

by Mike
(Oro Valley, az)

ALoha We have a one year old parakeet that recently moulted and this moulting seems longer than normal. There are still a bunch of new feathers coming onto his head, but the main concern was that for about a week, he had some undigested seeds in his poop.


I havent noticed any more in the last few days, but the energy level is still low and he is sleepin alot.

any thoughts?

Thanks,
mike

Undigested seeds in poop

This is what Dr B told another person that posted the same question...

"It is best to put your bird in a small cage or aquarium and put a heating pad on high then cover it with a towel. Cover half of the cage with a towel to hold in the heat. He needs to be in 90-95┬║F.

There are several things that can cause these symptoms. You need to have some diagnostics done to determine the cause and THEN give treatment based on the results. I would also recommend that you assume he is contagious and isolate him from the rest of your flock.
