    Recently (yesterday) my quail has been having diarrhea. up until now it's been normal brown with possibly a bit of white (didn't look to close [​IMG] ) but today while he was sitting up by the computer with me I noticed a yellow- creamy milky looking liquid on his poop- place. He has unfortunately had some stress full events ( he's just 2 dang curious I tell you [​IMG] ) so I'm wondering if that has some cause to it. He may be acting a bit lethargic as well (quite sleep during the day but at night seems normal). I searched on here for previous topics/posts, but found nothing too helpful. I may be over worrying but none-the-less, I will praise the almighty quail gods in hope. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Please help soon, because until than I'll just be [​IMG]

    It's likely just as you stated, stress related. Normal bird M.O. Is when stressed, evacuate.... Bill

    Not sure of the species, but coturnix will poop out yellow poop, so you will spend money on red pepper to treat blackhead. Which is usually fatal if you got it! Yellow poop in coturnix, raised on wire, usually much corn in the feed mix.

    It sounds like a cecal poo which is perfectly normal. Does it have a strong odor?

    The white in his 'normal' poo is also normal. Birds don't urinate so the white part of their poo is the 'urine'.
