Quaker Parrot Poop

My quaker Parrot's poop has turned a very runny lime green color, and has a very bad oder. What can cause this?

His feathers around his butt are starting to disappear, I think because of the acid in his poop. He is also loosing a lot of weight and is becoming a very picky eater.

vet near you

Dr Laurie Hess is in Bedford Hills. Your bird needs antibiotics now. My Eclectus had bright green poop & was lethargic. It turned out to be Pseudomonas, which usually has very smelly poop. Your bird may be contagious to other birds, so be very careful & wash your hands. I hope you can get her to a vet soon. Their little bodies can't take much. Good luck.

You must get your bird to an avian vet right away for an in person exam. Dr B can not help with this, because he can't examine the bird and run any tests to determine what is causing this.

If you need an avian vet, you can look for one on our Find an Avian Vet page.
