I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. We don't have many avian vets on this site. Yellow poo suggests anorexia but not the cause of the anorexia. What was the result of Lucy's vet's physical exam? Were blood tests or a fecal ova and parasite exam performed? Bacterial culture of Lucy's droppings?
