So ive had this problem for awhile, well techichally not a serious problem. But here the thing my bird started eating vegtables very much, she really likes veggies. So her poop becomes very loose and watery. So the fact that her poop is watery, the poop stains her vent feathers, cuasing her to pluck the dirty feathers away. So now her vent is butt naked with dirty poop. This is not a sign that she is sick. She takes great care of her feathers. But i dont want her to pluck them away becuase of the loose poop on her vent may bother her. She just want to be clean. So what should i do so she can stop plucking her feathers? I need advice😭 she is a really happy girl.

A bird that’s healthy shouldn’t be having loose stools, veggies don’t cause watery poop.
I have 9 birds all of whom eat lots of veg every day and none of them have loose stools.
I think I remember you saying there’s no vet around you? Or that she’s been and they don’t know what’s wrong?

Sorry you’re going through this, it’s never easy to have a bird that has a problem that is hard to diagnose.

She has like what can i Say the poop is normal it is just more water when she eats vegtables, the feathers have grown on an off when she eats more vegtables. Just to clarify her poop has been normal when she just eats pellets and not vegtables.

Maybe you should hold off on the veggies until her vent feathers grow back then reduce the quantity of really wet veggies. Best to see a vet first. Try catching her wet poops on a white paper towel and take photos so the forum members can comment on her poops.

We havs been to the vet, and they told me she was very healthy, she is obsessed with cucumbers so that are the main reason her poop sometimes be loose.
