    I am most certain someone before me has asked this question; my birds are leaving butterscotch pudding color and consistancy droppings(some will show signs of the white swirled in, but most of the time not) [​IMG] . It is most of the time, we have not had any eggs from moult to now (normal), their combs seem pale and powdery.
    They race and run, sing and are eating well. They have not been having different grain or treats. [​IMG]
    Any suggestions?

    Sounds like what you are seeing is cecal droppings as opposed to fecal droppings. Do a search on cecal. There's a lot of informative information on it. Once you have read it and someone says you do know ---- you can say "yes I do".

    Yup, butterscotch pudding is the way I describe it. Yuk! Completely normal, though.

    Again folks, thank you for your replies. I did give them some Ivomectin yesterday and have not noticed what the droppings were today, but yuck anyways. Thank you so much, I have relief!
