My Russian tortoises shell is turning from a light brown to a green color. Is this bad? Does this mean she is not getting enough nutrients?

Tort she’ll turning green
by: Anonymous

Tort she’ll is turning green very worried, I noticed he avoids his food and eats bird poop when his in the garden. His always finding a spot to sleep in does not really play around much. Any advise or help?
