Yesterday I noticed scooters poop was black. I believe it was his morning poop because it was big and it was in the spot where he sleeps. Can it be black because he didn't eat all night or because it was dry?? All the droppings before and after were normal looking.....except for the yellow ring around his poop. This has always been like this I think. I decided to put down the wax paper to see the urine part and it was a light pale yellow color. His diet consists of seeds, pretty bird pellets, rice, corn, peas, occasional fruit. He had some apple the night before the black poop appeared. I have pictures but I can't figure out how to enlarge them. I took them on my phone. I read the abnormal droppings thread but I'm still confused. the actual poop part looks normal. He is acting pretty normal, just nastier than usual.. He's molting. I'm waiting for a call back from the vet. She may not get back to me until the end of the week.
