Cockatiel poop

Dear all,

I am new to keeping cockatiels. I have a male and female from separate breeders. They are kept in different cages side by side. I am posting a picture of the male bird and his poop. Please kindly see the images and let me know is the poop is normal for cockatiel or is it due to stress of relocation. Thanks in advance. The vent of the male is slightly soiled. However, the bird is lively, it sings and chirps towards the female.

Thanks in advance

Re: Cockatiel poop

The poop looks normal to me.

Where are you located in the world? I always recommend taking any new birds to a certified avian vet for a wellness check -- they can look both birds all over and determine if there are any issues regarding their health! Much better and more reliable then people on the internet.

Make sure they're getting a diet more than just seeds -- they can have and should enjoy a varied diet including pellets, fruits and veggies and sprouts!

I know this isn't what you asked, but you should really not cover the cage partially like that. Uncover full during the day or you could end up with behavioral/hormonal issues.
