    Not sure about this - won't the wormer cause more diarrhea? If you're sure you didn't see any worms, I think I would 'wait & see' for a few days. You don't want the birds to get dehydrated, especially if they have the 'snots'. Sue

    Some birds just have runny droppings. I have a chicken that nearly always has runny droppings, and she's perfectly healthy otherwise. You can try giving your bird some probiotics, and see if that helps. Worming might be a good idea, too. Keep in mind that Wazine only kills roundworms, so if your bird has other types of worms, the Wazine won't cure her. Safeguard and Valbazen are two better dewormers.

    thanks everybody. gonna give some plain greek yogurt. i did give a little garlic for the snots. some folks give this on a regular basis. i would be a little careful on too much. can cause anemia, especially in dogs. we give little garlic once a month for fleas. works like a charm and not as harmful as popular flea applications.
