Bird poop red
by: Tracie

If you feed colored pellets or red food, then it could be the food coloring in the food. If you are feeding colored pellets, please switch your bird to a healthier pellet that is not full of chemicals and sugar.

Our avian vet suggests that you feed your bird Harrison's or Roudybush pellets for 70% of it's diet and only 30% healthy treats and seeds.

If you are not feeding your bird red items, then you need to Find an Avian Vet right away to examine your bird.
