Hello! My partner and I have recently gotten a cockatiel from Petco 3 weeks ago. She is 7 months old. She has more of an observer personality with a sassy attitude. We named her Lemon Hope. She was in an environment where she got little to no interaction with people and other birds. So we were glad to get her and put her in a loving home!

Ever since we had gotten her she's had yellow urate. I didn't think too much of it as it could be because of her seed diet she has, however; I've recently noticed that her poop has a greenish tint to it?? I'm not too sure. She has also been coughing/wheezing/sneezing a lot for the past few days and I'm starting to get concerned. Today she didn't eat from my hand this morning as it is a routine of ours, and she seems exhausted. I got an appointment scheduled for her a week from now as that is the soonest I've been able to find a place that'd take care of her. Is this a much more urgent case? Cuz i have this feeling i can't shake off, and i don't wanna brush it off until it's too late.

Poop is 1 detector of problems since this is from June 2022 you have had this problem detected. It could be a draft or a change of food. I hope she's OK now please post how's she's doing and what was the diagnosis.
She died the next day. Bacteria was detected and is assumed to be why she passed. We tried to get her into the UGA vet hospital but they wouldn't take her until a week later. May she rest in peace.

Luckily, we've prevented from making the same mistake, we have 4 birds now and they've been happy and healthy.

If they would have flushed the crop and hit her with antibiotics she might of made it from the very first wheezing,sneezing drinking lots of water due to dehydration pooping water stools you have a 50/50 chance of saving her. I love feisty females Cockatiels. I am sorry you lost her.
