    If this was me I would remove fruit pellets for all my birds
    diets, go with natural and a healthy seed mix- Im thinking
    her system isnt liking the ingredients, and this does cause
    problems internally. Remember pellets are man made and
    parrots dont eat them in the wild- think of how their system
    is and set up for survival in the wild, they eat seed and
    natural stuff not man made crap.
