My male glider has something green on his chest.. I thought maybe he got into something & it turned his fur green but it's been there for a few days.. Any clue if he just got into something or if it's a sign of any sicknesses? & he seems to be active & is still eating good..

Try taking a damp wash cloth and wipe the area to see if the color comes off. I expect it will.

Do you have any bird toys in the cage? These often have rawhide or wooden parts that are colored with food grade dye than can come off when wet.

Look for metal parts of toys like chains or pear shaped hooks. These metal parts often turn green when they come in contact with glider pee - much like costume jewelry will turn your skin green after coming in contact with sweat.

He probably has just rubbed against something while marking the cage and gotten this on his fur.
