That's great, I'm so glad that Cady was able to get all her feathers back in without any trouble

Thank you for updating us on how she was doing!

Thank you for providing the update with regard to Cady's feathers. She's looking much better at this time.

Please let us know how things go at her Avian Vet appointment on Friday.

I'm wishing your little girl all the best.

I'm pleased to say that Cady had her check up at the vets and she's nice and healthy I do have another concern as of tonight however...

I have recently weaned her off pet store seed onto Trill seed, which is reinforced with vitamins. I am in the process of weaning her off this to pellets, as the vet was able to order me some. I've noticed that a couple of her droppings have a green tint to the urine part. The feces part and urate part are fine and as they should be, and usually her urine around it is clear, but on her newspaper I can see a few poops that have a green "halo". These ones tend to happen either during the night or when she first wakes up, and her Trill seed does have some green seeds in it. The pellets are brown. The photos best show off what I mean. Is this normal for a bird on her diet or should I take her back to the vets? Her behaviour has not changed.

Just an update, I checked her cage floor again this morning and it looks like overnight she didn't produce any more discoloured urine. Her poops dried normally with no staining around the outside. As it's bank holiday today the vets are closed - shall I just continue to monitor her or should I book an appointment asap?

Sorry to post again! Long story short, I took Cady to see the vet and the vet said she was fine and seemed healthy. She is very bright, playful, loves to be handled and her appetite is good. I've noticed something strange about her poops though. The fecal part and the urate part are fine, however her urine isn't always clear. I've attached some photos (one of them is a cluster under her sleeping perch). Some of the poops have noticeabley green urine "halos", though her more recent poops are fine and clear. She has stayed at a steady weight (31g). She has recently been weaned off pet store seed onto Trill seed mix, which does contain som green seeds, would that effect it? I'm in the process of getting her onto pellets, so she's been eating some of them too, but they're brown.
Is this something that needs be looked asap, or shall I just keep an eye on her poop for now?

Edit to add: she doesn't eat much fruit and veg, which is why I'm getting her onto pellets, so I know the colour isn't from greens. Also, none of her poops have undigested food, those seed husks are from me blowing them out of the dish

I've merged your two threads with your concerns about your budgie's health into one as you asked the same question in both threads.

Simply continue to monitor her.

Just like with people, animals' poop may change in consistency and color due to stress, diet, etc.

The picture you posted doesn't look as if there is any reason for concern.

Everything seemed normal until again today, when I found these poops in her cage overnight. They were dried so I've put them next to one of her pellets as an example. The colour of these is worrying me, but they were the only two like this she produced. All her other droppings are/have been normal. If she produces any more of this colour I'm going to ring the vet, but do you think it could be because of her pellets? Just yesterday I reduced the amount of seed and increased the amount of pellets.

Why don't you call your Avian Vet and see if you can email the picture and your questions directly to them.
The vet should be able to give you the best advice and let you know if s/he thinks the budgie needs to been seen in the office.
