Parrotlet Fecal Organism
A group of related (siblings but different clutches) color mutant parrotlets presented for workup of feather destructive behavior progressing to head tremors then tetraparesis.  Fecal exams were performed on 2 of the less affected birds.  The fecal directs and one of the fecal gram stains were unremarkable.  The other contained 3 elongated organisms with gram negative cytoplasm and gram positive organelles.  We are unsure of the identity of these organisms (and therefore their significance).  Does anyone know what these organisms are or a good resource to help us ID them?
