Hello, my 7.5 years old budgie has started to poop very weirdly after last weekend. She is eating and drinking normally, she also didn't eat something unusual. Her behaviour is also normal - flying, talking, singing, shouting, playing with toys - everything is as usual. But her poops are white with little bit of yellow outside for last couple of days. If you touch the poop when it is fresh, it is almost dry and feels like modelling clay.

Yeah, it can be another reason. She has one bone for long time now, so traces can be old. I haven't seen her eating it, because during the week I'm leaving home in the morning and coming back in the afternoon, so I don't know what is she doing in the cage during this period.
But now I was looking at her today poops and they are becoming slightly green again. I was just worried because this never happened before.
Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.
Having your budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.
