I've started feeding my budgie the "Zupreme pellets for small birds" and now her poop is light brown, soft and has a bit of white in the middle. Is this a cause for concern? Her buddy just died as well so i hope it's not the food causing death. Pellets is the only thing she's currently eating, I'm ordering seeds on Amazon now.

Im very worried about her health. My cockatiel is also eating these pellets and I haven't seen the big chunks of poop she usually does....

Not a good choice as colored pellets can affect the color of the Poop and one could be running to the Vet's office in the early morning because of the color!

Zupreem pellet’s definitely effect poop color.
Lots of things that are natural will do it.
blue berries
black berries
spectacular poop’s for sure.

She's not eating the colored ones. She eats the natural brown ones

i think she is fine, i change my bird to pellets and her poop turned light brown. i have read that it is completely normal for that to happen. but if u see something else abnormal, maybe check with ur vet😊

Thank you. It's good to know that the food is not causing more problems.

Any pellets (instead of seed) change the birds poop to resemble the color of the pellets. Mostly the poops turn more brownish-tan instead of green.
