Parrot pooping black

Made my parrot to take bath and now it’s not eating, the poop color is black



You need to take your bird to an avian Vet as soon as possible. What you describe sounds very serious.

I’m sorry this happened, but it sounds like you accidentally injured your bird or caused him to inhale water. Parrots do not need to be bathed. At most, you can use a misting bottle to spray a light mist of warm water over your bird.

Take care,
