    Any red dye `Could` cause this to happen. Do you feed your
    bird a cheap, colorful mix of pellets and seed. I have had my
    birds poop red, green and blue at different times. The cheap
    dye that off brands use can cause liver and kidney damage and
    I no longer use colorful feed unless it is marked as safe for
    them. If it`s really blood, see the Avian Vet.
