Big Poops!!!!!! :yuck:

Hey anyone else have the problem where their bird, will poop really big time once tyou take him away from the cage? My friends pigeons do that, and it's right after they get off their nest. Is that the same thing that Eli is doing???? Because he's done these huge poops on my shirt........luckily it's usually my pajama shirt but still it's kind of grosse feeling. Any ideas on how to get him to poop in his cage? only thing that is ever in his cage is the crumbs from his food. It's almost as if he is holding it so that he can get me lol. HELP

Sounds like you need to start potty training.

When you go to pick them up, hold them over newspaper and say "go potty". Then carry them around for a little bit. In about 15 mins go back over to the newspaper, hold them over it and say "go potty". If they go, make a huge deal of it, getting all excited. If they don't, just quietly take them away and bring 'em back in a few minutes and try again. Pretty soon they will associate "go potty" with the act.

It took Toby less then a week to be potty trained. I trained him when he was about 3 months old. He's not perfect and he does have accidents but for the most part, he's great. Babies have to go more often than adult birds so take that into consideration also.

Another thing is that when birds go to sleep for the night and then wake up, their first poop will be the biggest.
