That's good to hear. It's "bad enough" when a 'Tiel makes a dropping, but they're nothing in comparison to their larger cousins. . .;-)

For five years I had a pet peacock who slept on the foot of my bed on cold or rainy nights. Compared to a peacock, macaw or cockatoo droppings are insignificant both in quantity and "quality".

Lou,
Yep, I don't think that I'd like to have to clean up the droppings after peafowl.

droppings dropped on them. Or my bare shoulder, or in my head. And hey it all washes out/off. Of course it should be noted that it is NOT impossible to house train a parrot to make his/her droppings in a particular spot.

"NOT impossible?" can you give some more insight? one thing i notice, Quaker

vs 'tiel is that the tiels don't crap in food as much, or crap as often. the Quaker was an ... been potty trained first hand. Bob would hold him over a wastebasket and tell him "Potty" and he would go.

that was my method too, but while he would gladly comply if i caught him preparing, if i was not watching closly he never failed to just go, anywere. maybe the Quaker is not smart enough? or he was just too lazy? Loren
Any bird can be kept in an open cage... HOWEVER, ... help you avoidmaking a similar mistake. Epo the Cockatoo's Pet..

LOL, I had to laugh when I read this. Of course it was only funny because the bird did not get hurt, but it reminded me so much of my Macaw. When I am doing something around the house I "try" to leave him out, but he is amazing at how fast he can climb down and destroy something.

my Quaker never got out, tho it tried, it was heavy, large "California"cage, the lock was not used. BUT he ... do it again and he did! after that, it became a game at play time which he never tiredf. Loren

LOL, I am not sure how many watches I have gone through with my Macaw. He is always trying to get a good bite on it. I of course try to keep him away for it, but after so many "near miss's" he will finally get a chunk off it, or the band. and it's off to buy a new watch.

Which RAH books do you like? Herman

BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE Hash: SHA1 Yep, at one time ... a parrot to make his/her droppings in a particular spot.

"NOT impossible?" can you give some more insight? one thing i notice, Quaker vs 'tiel is that the tiels don't crap in food as much, or crap as often. the Quaker was an eating machine and i learned the meaning of, 'crap thru a goose'.

My parents have a free roaming yard goose... and OHMYGOSH, that thing has decorated their front yard, their back yard, their driveway, my driveway, and their porch... so bad that you don't know where or how to put your feet down to get into their house... In my experience... the bigger the bird... the bigger the mess...
I'd much rather be crapped on my my tiel or quaker than the cockatoo,.. and he's the one that loves to go down my back the most! LOL. My mom's Too and her Macaw are both potty trained. Will only go off their playgyms or in/off of their cages.
That would be nice. But oh well. Emotion: smile

Hi Shannon
Robert Anson Heinlein (1907-1988) and regarded as one of the "Fathers of Science Fiction", wrote such classics as Stranger in a Strange Land, Starship Troopers, Time Enough for Love, Puppet Masters, Friday etc. in fact way too many for me to even considering listing here :-( Please don't ask me which one to recommend though, it all depends if you like SF or books which border on it at the least.
TTFN
Ian
