    Is it all the time or occasionally?
    Most birds have a really awful loose poop from the blind pouches in their intestines...it's known as Splort and smell bad. That's one or two out of every other 5 or6 poops.

    what wormer are you using?

    please say what all you are feeding.

    is she eating and drinking?
    is she alert?
    does she act sleepy?

    it's possible she could have intestinal coccidiosis..
    is she thin?
    medicines for that are available from a vet or farm/feed/livestock supply stores.
    I prefer Corid or Amprol if you can get it.
