my pet ringneck dove's poop is smelly and dark brown but like diarrhea. She is eating but drinking water a lot. what can it be? she's on a seed diet with some pellets mixed in

she was dewormed and had a blood test last month and the results came clean. this started happening a week ago. she doesnt poop much but when she does its smelly and brown like diarrhea.

thanks

Can you describe the smell? Canker droppings sometimes have a sulphur smell and coccidiosis a particular, also sulph-like smell, or child diarrhea smell but the two are different. I tend to think is coccidiosis, but I may be wrong.

Some photos with the droppings will help as well.

Has she been under a lot of stress lately? How long has she had the diarrhea? I would get a fecal done.

Do you ever give her probiotics or put organic apple cider vinegar in her drinking water?

That may help producing good gut bacteria and crowd out bad bacteria, as well as clear up the diarrhea.
