First the educational part of this exercise:

There are three main components that make up a heaping helping of healthy bird-poo:

Urine, Urate, and Feces are the three parts. How much of each of those parts you will see in one poo can vary depending on the species of bird and their diet. Speaking for ourselves, the picture below represents a good healthy poo - where as a Lorikeet's poo would be a bit runnier - ewwwww.
Urine:
Because urine is clear (looks like water) it doesn't show up well in the photo below, but it is there ALLOVER, and should always be present.

Urates:
Chrystalline Urine - the wonderful white to light-beige part of bird poo that splatters so nicely on the windshield of your car when driving.

If your urate looks green-ish or yellow-ish it can be a sign of liver disease. Dark brown-ish urates can mean lead poisoning.

Feces:

The typically green-brown tubular shaped globs of stuff you see in our poop. Sometimes people think that we birds have diarrhea when there is a lot of urine in our poo - but that is not so. Diarrhea is pretty uncommon in birds and makes our poo look like pea soup. If your bird eats lots of fruits he might appear to have diarrhea. When a bird eats colored pellets or berries, the feces will reflect this by being the color of the food item ingested.

The important thing to remember is to tell your pet humans to use newspaper or paper of some kind in the bottom of your cage - not shavings or pellets. Your human should monitor your poo daily and get to know what it looks like so that they can identify when things are going wrong. If the human sees something wrong with your poo it is best to get you to the avian vet quickly.
There are a LOT of places on the WWW that have LOTS of detailed information about bird poop. You can find them by using your favorite search engine.

Very Healthy Parrot Poo

The SplatRet Test

Splat-n-Retro's version of the Rorschach Test

The creators of this test would like to thank Dot and Dutch for their GENEROUS contributions to the project.

Keep in mind folks, there are no right or wrong answers for this test. However, if your answers alarm us we may just do a quick scan of your computer to figure out who you are and then call the local authorities :-)

The funniest responses (yes, "funny" is subjective - meaning we may think something is funny when no one else does) will be posted for the world to see, if they should decide to come to our website.

Disclaimer: We are in no way affiliated with Rorschach, and if someone is offended by squished bird poo... well, what are you doing surfing a parrot site?

First ask yourself this very important question - Which of the items below best describes you:
We DO use this information when interpreting your feedback.

Directions:
