Audie has done a couple of odd poops recently. Most are fine, but one or two have been like water with the green swirly worm bit in them. Should I be concerned? He is his usual very active self, but I know they are good at hiding illness, and if I need to act I would rather do it sooner than later.

I have been increasing his fruit and veg and decreasing his seed mix, which may be a factor. He hasn't eaten any of his pellets, although one was missing, but I think the dog ate it.

Any poop experts around?

I'm worried because the white part (urates?) is missing.

My guys have the same types of poops. So long as he passes complete stools at some time during the day, there really is nothing to be concerned about. If the poop is a soupy mess with no separations of solids and liquids, THEN you can get concerned.

Yes, he is eating fine :). He had a lot to eat at supper tonight, mashed yams and butternut squash with rpo and peas. Only two poops have been missing the white bit, with normal ones in between. I was panicking about kidney failure!!

Thankyou :). I will be able to sleep tonight now x

Both look pretty normal to me.

The vet will just ask what they're eating, and then confirm it's normal.  :wink:

M2MM the morning routine with my greys is that theyre in the cage at 9.30 with all the lights off but the cover drawn up and then at 12 wen my dad locks up he covers them. then in the morning at 6 theyre up bcz hamzah wakes up for scool, so he greets them wile theyre groggy and half awake and they go bck to sleep after he leaves. then my dad opens the cage wen he comes down for breakfast before work at 8.30am and they do their morning flight where they swoop down into the kitchen religiously followed by huge droppings. its a huge green mess with white swirling in it. It's always been that way every morning. Not like diarrhea, just thick and pastey with a bit of liquid but all mixed. Some mornings it's a normal knotted lump without liquid, but most days its mixed.

I always thought this to be normal? They poop normally during the day depending on what they eat and their stool and liquid separates all day. It's js in the mornings that it all comes out in one. And I assumed this is that way because they either don't poop through the night from the time dad covers them till they fly down for breakfast or frm the time hamzah greets them before school.

Sometimes if we'r late openin them in the morning then they poop in the cage instead of wen they fly down and it's still the same green glob.

Kiki....sounds ok to.me & it will.depend on what they last.ate. kez has her fresh pomegranate last thing at night before bed so usually her first poop is a soupy browny/red splat ha ha !

If her poop is very green throughout the day or when it isnt normally i cut back on her fruit & veg a bit & it.normally.goes back to being firm & normal colouring :)

They have supper at around 7 wich is their last meal unless they decide to snack on palm fruit nuts wile I'm covering their cage. Their supper varies daily:

scrambled eggs with broccoli and cauliflower and beet greens mashed into it

whole wheat muffins with peas and coconut milk

wild rice/jasmine infused rice with dried tomatoe or split peas or assortment of squash pieces and carrot cubes

Steamed Sweet potato and butternut/pumpkin cubes

Hawaiian stir fried vegetables

Tinkerbells Mash

Pasta/noodles (boiled with cut chillies for spice) and cheese

That's their weekly supper routine. Breakfast is usually watever my dads having (cereal, oats, banana, melon, yoghurt) and afternoon they get an assortment of fruit

Jeez I just realized how spoiled they are after re/reading ths post for typos lol ((o_O))

It sounds to be like they are pooping normally.  Miu's morning poop is a big 'log' of green and white with little urine.  The intestines absorb most of the water overnight which leaves primarily solids for morning evacuation.  tongue.png  During the day, his poops are smaller and more frequent and the amount of urine is tied to how much water he drinks and the moistness of his food.  The colour of the fecal matter (solids) is directly tied to the foods eaten.  They can range from brown to green to purple depending on what was eaten a few hours before.  Ah, the joys of parronthood.  lol.gif
