Let us know how you get on but would recommend that blood test if the diarrhoea continuesThanks plumsmum
I took the male ekkie to the vet shortly after he had developed the diarrhoea and the vet put him on the bird equivalent of kaolin for 5 days. He also gave hime a thorough examination and tested his stool. This coincided with the female laying her first egg. That was over a month ago and made no difference. He is very happy in himself, good appetite and normal behaviour. I think that Michael is right in that he is sensitive to the females' hormones. I have noticed over the years with all of my birds that if the get excited their stools become loose. He is not too keen on flying, but I can try that and get him some more toys.
