    I have a 6 month old silkie who’s been super hyper, she’s been pecking at everything, being so loud.. but the thing is her poop looks unhealthy, I gave her some electrolytes yesterday & oatmeal, her poop has gone worst

    Is she acting okay? I wouldn't be worried about a few odd poops here and there. She should be okay. That Poop looks wet and messy but not alarming. She is eating and drinking okay? Acting normal despite being loud?

    Have you been giving her scraps or a lot of treats? That can cause loose stools too.

    Diet change isn't good. Just fresh water and regular feed.

    Yeah she’s been eating & drinking, she’s super clingy with me also.. she hasn’t pooped solid, she’s also trying to squeeze herself in tight places, rn she’s behind my mirror, she never does this

    I thought elextrolytes would help her & raw oatmeal bc I read it can help with digesting

    I would stop with treats for now. No scraps either. Just her regular feed and fresh water.

    No..A down Bird actually does best on its regular diet because you don't want to cause stomach upset.

    Oh yeah you’re right, I want to take her to the vet but I don’t really have the money for it.. but I’ll just give her regular water, she already ate her normal food
