For some reason, the parent cockatiel experiencing diarrhea for over a week now.
1. I noticed that there is an increase of urine.
2. The dropping sometimes still able to hold its form, other times it is like rice puddding.
A breeder suggested that the increased amount of urine can be due to the increase intake of water. It is because the parents want to produce soft regurgitated food. Is this true?
What might be the cause of the diarrhea in this case (note: there is no change in their diet and however, every once in a while, I will change the proportion of pellets and seeds)?
Could the diarrhea be due to stress from feeding all these babies (note: this is their first time ever to take care of their babies. Currently there are 3 babies)?
What possible way can cure or minimize the diarrhea?
The babies are having normal droppings, so I guess the diarrhea from the parents may not due to infection or any diseases? because if it is due to infection or diseases, wouldn't the babies get transmitted too?
Thank you for the advice~~~~
