My cockatiel is pooping yellow. Her name is Missy, she is 4
Just today the urates in her poop is yellow, she hasn't been eating very much and has slept mostly. I noticed poop dangling out of her vent so took her for a bath but it wasn't wiping away, I had to physically pull it out (making me think possible worm) though it wasn't wriggling or moving if it was a worm.

I'm going to of course take her to my local vet but they're not avian so any pointers they may not think of would be helpful… read more
