Just lost my favorite buddy silkie. He had bright green runny poop for 2 days and gone today. What would cause this?

sorry for your loss Crying or Very sad

if i am not mistaken, green poop can come from organ trouble, or green poop can also be due to not eating enough. Such things as a impacted crop or partial impacted crop??? was his crop empty?..... hard?..... or squishy like a water ballon? Just something to rule out.

Best way to describe it s like one of those bean bag balls you squeeze to supposedly relax your hands? That's what a crop feels like. But never apply to much pressure when checking your birds crop.

I only suggested this just so you could rule it out. If it was a partial impact he would of also been very skinny. It could of been from other health problems, old age or disease, but I don't know. Just keep a eye on your other birds for illness symptoms. But at this time of the year the winters can be extra hard on our birds and being confined can create different problems. Whithout having a post mortem you may never now.

again I'm not saying it was a crop problem it could of been a more serious health problem as well.
