I have a three month old RN dove who is with me for a week or so. I noticed that when she came in, she had green stains on her tail feathers and then noticed that all of her droppings were bright to dark green. I did not give her any veggies. She gets bird seed and grit and oyster shells once in awhile. She is not stressed by other animals and is very tame. Any suggestions as to what the green droppings are?

Stress and a change in diet could give green and watery droppings.
She could have coccidia, but as long as she is eating, drinking and acting fine I wouldn't treat her. Wait another week till she adjust better to her new environment.

Bright green droppings can also be a sign of starvation. Sometimes it will appear a bird is eating when they really aren't. Is she thin? Since she is friendly, feel her crop to find out if she is eating.
