Exclamation poop problems!!!

if its not one thing its another! yestersay beau ate LOADS, his crop was so full i didn'y know what it was at first! well today his poops are just water, not sure what to do. he has been eating a lot of grapes recently and i'm currently switching from seed mix to pellet, would this make a difference?
also i gave all my fids some mashed boiled eggs in shells (boiled for 15 mins) but beau pigged out on those too.

and mossy (hahns) is doing pale brown splats. he is also changing from seed to pellets and had egg yesterday, and quite a few brussel sprouts.

willow and mimsy have had the same and seem fine, beau and mossy are still playful and acting normal. should i do anything?

beau's done about 8 poops today and all are water, i've taken away the fresh food for now and just left pellets/seeds and some nuts.

help!!!!!

Re: poop problems!!!

A lot of water in means a lot of water out. A lot of grapes could certainly do that. Poop is highly reflective of what the bird eats. Red peppers will sometimes give you reddish poop. When I opened my bird room door this morning, I swear I could smell broccoli...not pleasant. The birds all had broccoli yesterday...

Re: poop problems!!!

Yes.. I agree with Sharon... Abby just realized she loves broccoli and spinach.. so I have been giving her extra broccoli and spinach and her poop is real green.

Last week I gave her some pomegranate and her poop was kinda of reddish brown..
So as Sharon says what goes in comes out the same color.

Re: poop problems!!!

Great advice. Also, natural pellets cause brown poops and seed cause green poops.
