    If it's only the morning, it is probably nothing to worry about. The amount of water depends upon how much fluids she had in terms of water and fruits/veggies in the evening.
    Within all of us is a varying amount of space lint and star dust, the residue from our creation. Most are too busy to notice it, and it is stronger in some than others. It is strongest in those of us who fly and is responsible for an unconscious, subtle desire to slip into some wings and try for the elusive boundaries of our origin. ~K.O.

    Re:Poop smells like skunk

    Just seems strange after 13 years that she would have this...diarrhea every morning that smells horrible? She is acting normal in every other way, blood tests were clear, samples of "regular poop" proved normal...I don't know still feels like something is not right. I'm going to change her pellets and see what happens.

    Poop (fecies, excrements) smells like skunk

    1. I have had a pigeon for about one year and I noticed that when she over-eats and sits on her eggs for 20 days, she tends to hold her poop longer (she is very smart bird and does not want to poop around her nest - her nest is in my bedroom). So, being a very smart bird, she flys to the feeder in the corner of the bedroom and poops from or near the "designated pooping area". Very smart bird. Makes it easy for me to clean up. But her poop stinks to heaven when she does not poop very often. That happens when I am not around and she cannot leave her nest (eggs). As soon as I come back from school - she knows it is my turn to sit on eggs - and she starts flying around and pooping all those huge chunks of poop she was holding when I was not around.
    2. She likes "service": when there are no seeds in the dish she starts flying from the dish and onto my head, and back and forth. That is her signal she wants me to put seeds into her dish. But recently I noticed she just want attention: she has seeds, egg-shells, stones, water, greens, etc (everything that a bird needs) yet she would start flying back and forth onto my head and back to the dish. She just want me to show her that I pay attention and that give her things if she demands it. She is just verifying the communication system is working. She just wants attention and service. Social bird.
    Conclusion: the stinky poop is most likely from overeating and from diminished movements of the bird (sedentary lifestile). I notice MY OWN poop starts smelling like hell when I overeat and skip one hour of sweat-drenching gym session.

    Has anyone asked what the diet of your Grey friend is? What do you feed? I know you say you haven't changed the diet...but I am curious.

    poop is a funny thing

    You really need to be cognizant of what your fid is eating/drinking. At times ours will just download full water and I panic but then remember we gave them some apple juice with breakfast! Just remember that what you see going in you should see going out (having the knowledge of avain poop as a foundation, of course).

    Call me crazy, but I've caught more than one download in my hand just for the purpose of inspecting it lol. Hands wash easier than carpets, too
