I have a cockatiel I purchased about 2 weeks ago.
It was born on July 14th
It was being fed by its parents until it came to live with me a little more than 2 weeks ago.
I have been giving it kaytee diet hand feeding formula
Poor baby cries for food constantly, even right after it has been fed, I am hand feeding it 3 times a day.
Usually after feeding it goes right to eating seeds.
It sleeps some during the day, and its poops looks abnormal to me. Please see the attached photo.
These droppings are from one night, this surface was clean when I put her in the cage.
She does fly and is active most of the time, I am just worried something is wrong with her.
I took her to a vet and her did a culture on her droppings, no bacteria or anything abnormal found other than what looks like diarrhea.
She is also overweight.
Any ideas guys?

Thanks!

First of all, do you know just how old this baby is? It may have been taken from it's parents TOO soon. Also did you advise this the vet of what you are saying here? Did he say anything about this birds weight? I would keep an eye on the droppings and if it continues to look like that, I would take it back to the vet or find another vet.
