    Hi everyone - just wondering if anyone has any insight about the change in my 2 1/2 year old spaulding peahen's - poop !? A few days ago I notice she had a diarrhea - a solid "seaweed green" color. Thatlasted only 1 day . She'e eating , drinking - seems perfectly fine . Not sick at all . But now her poop has changed to this .. Worried about what to do next ? Any ideas what this may be and next steps - if any at all ? Thanks so much for any info anyone can help me with ..Sorry about the images but I know you guys will understand ( and relate ! ) .. Thanks .. IMG_20170609_125052.jpg IMG_20170609_125109.jpg

    @casportpony, our resident poop inspector general will be along shortly. These look like urine to me.

    I would have a vet look at that poop for sure.

    @Gianna , please note that I'm not saying your peahen is sick. If you are the paranoid type it would be best to have a vet examine her poop for worms, coccidia, bacteria, protozoaa, and yeast. It also might be a good time to get a baseline weigh on her.
