Sun Conure with strange poop

by Nora

My Sun Conure is 19years old and has within the last 3 days begun to have a very thin brown poop, accept for his very first morning poop which appears to be normal. He also has a horrible smelling gas. He always only pooped in one area of his cage, but he is now pooping where ever he happens to be.

He is still eating his fruit and nut, but does not seem to be drinking very much water. I believe he is sick, but we have no reliable vets in the area do you have any advice as I hate to loss him if there is something I can do.

Conure with brown droppings

I am sorry your bird is sick. :-( Unfortunately, the only way to know what your bird needs to get well, can only be determined by a visit with an avian vet. Your bird needs a specific treatment for a specific problem.

Please look at our Find an Avian Vet page. If there is not a vet listed in VA near you, then at the top of the page there is a link to another site where you can do a search.

Also, whoever you purchased your bird from should have a number to an avian vet, unless they don't care if they have unhealthy birds and are just trying to make money.
