Question Brown Poop?

My budgies are going passing droppings that are brown in colour. Is this normal?

Healthy budgies have dark green poops with whites at the circumferences. Sometimes a little lighter green.

Brown colour - I have never come across in any of my 7 budgies. Any of its food contain any brown coloured ones like brown rice, fibre bread, etc ?

Here's an article on budgie droppings: http://www.birds-online.de/gesundhei...atorkot_en.htm

This is what it has to say about red/brown droppings:

"When you find reddish or dark-brown to black droppings, there may be blood causing this discolouration if you didn't give red food to your bird before. For example red beet or cherries as well as some kinds of berries temporarily lead to reddish droppings. In case the droppings remain discoloured in the described way for a longer period, it's better to contact a vet and tell him about it."

Hope this helps!

My little guy's droppings are tan/beige on the days he doesn't eat his vegetables but only eats pellets and a little seed. But it is definitely related to diet. Usually he eats loads of veggies and the droppings are green. If you haven't changed diet recently, I might be concerned.
