    Runny poop is usually a symptom of something else. But I have seen what you describe many times with no other symptoms. I usually have 1 or 2 birds with runny poop every couple months or so. I have never been able to find the cause. I usually feed them yogurt mixed with feed, about 2 cups of yogurt for 35 birds, 2-3 times over 2 weeks. The runny poop goes away for a couple months and then I start all over again with a couple new birds. I lost a bird who had it last year before I started using yogurt. Hope this helps. -Dan
