  Birds poop many times an hour.   They say you can try and potty train them but that isn't always successful or 100% all the time.   She can poop and then poop again 5 mins later.  Not like big dog pile poops, but still.  Tongue I keep a towel for my lap and I am trying to get her to poop on a smaller towel, but so far no success. I do say the word poop when she does she may start associating it and we may make some progress someday. 

   A kleenex cleans up her poops pretty easy so I find it deal-able.  And you know after they eat a big pile is coming so they say you can kind of get to know your bird and when and how often they will poop and even the sign they give before.


   How many times was the word "poop" used in this post?
  Grin


You can see she is getting more yellow feathers, like in the middle of her back.

   Birds are slobs!!   She will be eating and just drop what is left in her foot if she is done or doesn't like it.  Shredding stuff.  Dropping stuff wherever.  Pooping wherever.  Taking whatever they want.

  They just live and the hell with everyone else!   Grin


  I'm already thinking about a bigger cage, the one she has is fine because she does get a lot of time out of the cage, but we ( Cool) need more room for toys so I want something wider.

  I wish I had just bought a bigger/wider one to start off with.  Angry


 If/when I get a bigger one I will sell the other one most likely.  I really like this cage and the way it's built and some of the features on it, so from that point it was good because I know what to look for in a cage now.  Like what may be considered a small feature but I think is genius, is for the door there is this little piece of metal at the top of the door frame that just flips down, so even if you forget to slide the door latch to closed, this prevents the door from opening.

 I was told if you get too big a cage and make it too fun then they don't have a reason to come out.

There is a guy around here that has a very large cage he puts out in his yard in summer...he has several birds...I will try to keep an eye out for it and snap some pics.  I heard he uses one whole room of his house as the indoor cage!  ....not sure if that's true though.

  I have heard of people that do that.  They make it into an aviary and the birds can fly around.   

 Her wings will be kept clipped, so no flying.  I can't remember if it was the girl at the store or the vet that told me this (Maybe Vet can comment) but I was told that Sun Conure's are distance flyers so letting them fly in a room can be dangerous for them because they would probably hit the walls. They aren't good short distance birds so don't stop quickly that well?   I don't want her flying around with the dogs so that isn't an issue and I certainly don't want her crashing into walls.  She will "fly" down from her play gym sometimes, both the one on her cage and the portable one.  I have been in my room with her in the hall and then looked down and there she is at my feet.   Cheesy  So now I try and look and make sure she is still on the play gym before I walk anywhere and don't step on her.

 Yes, because I am so neat.    Grin 

    In her cage or on her playgym stuff usually drops "down" so it's not too bad, but she will drop bits of food off the side of the playgym or stick her butt over the edge and poop.   Tongue    Those natural enzyme cleaners work fine on clean ups.  Bird poop is still easier than a dog pile! 

 downstairs the dogs (meaning Tad) are there to get any of the food on the floor.   And if her portable play gym is downstair on a chair and I have left a food dish on it, Addie and Briona will clean it out.   Angry
