    Unhappy update: my diamond dove (what to look for in a sick diamond dove)

    hello! i've been posting a lot, and i'm sorry haha. but, since one or two of you mentioned keeping you posted, ill do exactly that . recently, i noticed my diamond dove, chili, has been acting weird-- sudden behavioral changes (like running from me, going from being totally okay with me to afraid me), appetite changes, poop changes, etc. (look out for this with your bird!!) her poop didn't look good either. so, i took her to the petstore w/ her poop to as a few questions. the lady accused me of "stressing her out" until she saw her poop and she was like oh.. . (i suspect its a liver disease) so she took chili into her care and refunded me. shes supposed to call me back when and if chili gets better but she didnt even call me when she needed to tell me her age! im afraid chili and i's relationship has come to an end on a short path. thank you anyone who has helped me out on this short journey!
    --
    p.s i feel so bad about this. i feel like im abandoning her
    --
    for other people's benefit, here were her symptoms:
    1. sudden behavioral change. going from tame, being willing to hang out with me/sit on my shoulder, eating out of my hand, and stepping up, to running from me and being afraid.
    2. poop change. from healthy poop to green poop with a lot yellow, watery urine (not urates)
    3. being constantly fluffed up
    4. being lathargic, constantly sleepy with minimal movement
    5. feather loss

    This makes me so sad for both you and Chili. You suspected something was off with her from the beginning. I am really sorry Justine. I hear that milk thistle seed is good for liver issues. I hope Chili gets better.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    I really hope Chilli will have a Vet checkup! Home remedies do not work for these symptoms. Chilli needs the vet evaluation asap. I too am soooo sorry you have had this heartbreaking experience. ((((((((Hugs))))))!!
