Hi. My name is***** and I am an avian veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand that Pretty Face has foul smelling droppings. The first place to start with this question is regarding the diet. I know you mentioned she eats pellets. Do you know what brand of pellet she is fed? Are there any other foods such as veggies or fruit?
