I'm worried about my bird, this does not look healthy. She isn't displaying any other symptoms, she still whistles and moves and is active, but this seems like a big health issue. Anyone know what it could be? Before I'm recommended a vet, there are none. I've also used the online vet services and they aren't able to help either.

What is her diet? They seem a bit reddish and watery so maybe shes eating too much fruit that led to this?

All seed diet. Is the urine portion of the feces okay? I've never known a bird to stain white paper this badly. I thought urine was supposed to be clear and dry clear, not leave a sickly looking stain.

All seed diets are very unhealthy for birds, birds should have a variety of fruits, vegetables and pellets to keep a healthy lifestyle. Try slowly changing the birds diet, and if the poop still shows like this, try communicating with a vet or an experienced breeder

Just a quick question, when your tiel poops, does it also leave this sickly looking stain on the paper? Because I have two budgies and when they poop, the urine portion is clear.
