    Question Can hormones cause a change in budgie poop?

    I have had Gio a male budgie for about 2 years and recently got a female, Ava. A few days after she came I noticed Gio's poop a little watery and lighter green. Ava's poop, on the other hand, looks normal.
    His diet hasn't changed and he hasn't eaten anything out of the ordinary. Can hormones be responsible for this?

    Hi, and welcome to the community. Have you changed seeds or pellets recent!y, or fed fresh green veggies. Either could cause the poop to change. But, in my view, it would be a female who would have loosed poops if it is hormones. Is it possible your male, could be a female? Having another female in the cage, could cause the older budgie, if female, to get her hormones started.

    He's definitely a boy. His cere is blue. I thought it could be food but his diet is so varied I can't pinpoint what it might be. I never noticed it before Ava came though.
    It's back to normal now.
