Wondering if normal?

Ok so i went from looking at the bird poop (which about drove me crazy) to looking at the urine..I put wax paper down like someone said to do so i could make sure the urine was clear..

I know for sure it has been clear but looked like it might had a green cast to it..I am like GREEN..oh no..so i take the paper and let it run down some and than it looks more clear..

I never did so this with the other birds i had..This could drive a person crazy..does the bird have other systems if there is a problem..skittles seems to be great..eating, drinking, pooping, sometimes i catch it when it first drops and i know it is clear..The poop is green so i am thinking that kinda might make a little green cast..

Any new people at there going through the same thing..I"ve had 2 other birds and i don't ever remember looking at the poop and urine like it do this sun conure..I think one can read to much...If i read illness of humans by the time i get through i have the systems..anyway i think i am going to just enjoyt he bird and leave that alone for awhile...

I wouldn't worry about it It most likely is the green off his poop. If it's a very bright green then I'd be concerned, but a little green isn't anything to be worrying about right now

Hi Skittles! I wouldn't worry about it too much as like was said, it's probably just a bit of his poop that got mixed with the urine part.
I remember when I had my 'Tiel, Hermes, that I started reading up about signs of sickness through a birds excrement and I got really paranoid as well that he had every illness under the sun, hahaha.
Relax and don't worry about it unless there are other symptoms that you are noticing.
