Sick or Stressed

My Quaker who I adopted on Saturday has green urine, I read online that that's a sign of liver disease. Could he just be stressed or could it be liver disease?

These are what they look like. Keep in mind I've only had him for a short time so I don't know much about his behaviour to judge if he's I'll by it.

I tell you honestly I'd be concerned about the green urine.
If it doesn't become normal in a few days you should better see the Avian to give him full bloodwork.
Maybe I'm concerned quickly because I had a linnie with a liver issue that died at the age of three years.

For some reason the image isn't expanding for me so I can't see it. How green is it? Is it a lime green? Very light green poop can be the tell tale sign of psittacosis. I'd visit your AV to be on the safe side

Zoomed for you.

Thank you Mr Peepers!

Are the pellets you're feeding him coloured at all? I would be quite concerned as they're very green. The only thing that I think could cause it other than stress/illness would be eating a lot of green coloured pellets

Are there green coloured pellets in there? If you're going to feed him pellets try to switch him to Totally Organics. They're probably the only brand I truly trust and they won't dye their poop

The original image wasn't expanding for me either, thank you for posting the close up!
It actually doesn't look too bad to me but I could be wrong. It's probably the colored pellets.

@catalinadee Totally Organics isn't a complete diet or is it now? I can't remember

@Abby no pelleted diet is complete and I think it's terrible that anything should be marketed as that. I don't think we will ever match their natural diets but we can get it pretty close. As you know, I choose not to no longer feed my birds pellets unless I have a bird that needs a bit of extra help or is stubborn with fresh foods. TOPs however, is the only brand that is honestly organic. I used to be big on Harrison's until I did my research and found that it's mostly fillers and a lot of it isn't organic. It's a shame really. I used to try out loads of different brands but now I won't have anything coloured what so ever

Ollie's break is peeling a bit, when this happened with my budgies I gave them coconut oil in their seed and it cleared up. (Organic pressed) Can Ollie have coconut oil?

@catalinadee I didn't mean complete, I should have clarified. I think we had a discussion about this before with TOPs, never mind though.
