Your GCC?

Watery foods can make your bird's droppings appear looser than usual. Sometimes droppings may even be all liquid. However, as long as any fecal matter remains solid, watery droppings are not diarrhea. They are perfectly normal instances of polyuria, an increase in urine. In fact, long-time bird owners who feed a healthy varied diet including not only pellets but moist foods such as fresh vegetables, fruits, beans, pastas and cooked grains know that extra-wet droppings are the norm - they mean the bird is well-hydrated. You can expect to see an increase in urine also if your bird receives a scare or experiences stress, such as during a veterinary exam.

Well, when did you see that poop? Was it a morning poop? Some birds won't really poop over-night and have one huge morning poop. My linnies are NOTORIOUS for this If you notice her poops are bulky like that on a regular basis, it could be a few things. When my linnies had a problem with their poops being too bulky, my vet put them on Bene-Bac because she believed the didn't have enough healthy digestive bacteria in their system. It's just a dry powder you sprinkle on their food. Whenever any of our birds in the shop get bulky poops, bene-bac is the first thing we try. It won't hurt your birds to give it to them, even if they don't need it, so it might be worth a try
