Hey y'all, sometimes my redfoot's poop is a bit unformed. What's this mean? I have only had her for a couple weeks now, I believe she's anywhere between 3-5? I've started to feed her everyday, but was mostly feeding her every other day for some time because that's what I was initially instructed to do but after posting on here, I've started to feed her more often. I have given her romaine, green leaf lettuce, turnips, arugula, watermelon, papaya, mango, and very little protein - a few worms and crickets. She doesn't ever finish her daily portion but eats a good amount of it - with preference for her romaine. She doesn't poop everyday, but most days she will poop when I soak her in warm water. Any tips or advice on if I'm doing something wrong?

The poop will vary a lot by what goes in.
That stringy looking poop looks like plant fiber to me. Normal if she's been eating lots of green leafy stuff.
What I see doesn't alarm me
