    When i was holding my avic today, it crawled onto the floor and everything seemed how it should, then it started to rear up its abdomen and loads of white stuff splirted out its rump, is this some kind of way of telling me to leave it alone

    please reply :?

    Don't worry about it, your Avic was "just" shooting some poop, possibly testing her aim. {D They are quite notorious to do that, nothing at all to worry about.

    Not just in defense.

    I think mine is trying to make designs on the side of the enclosure by hitting it friom different angles and altitudes. Maybe it wants to spell out a message. Maybe I could claim it made a madonna on the side of the cage and charge admission for people to see it.

    I think it's going for the new peble dash look

    My avics have shot the poop on me several times before. Just goes with the turf. But I dare you to just try and hold your avic in your bare hand while you wipe it's bum with tp. You may have more than poop to deal with. Look in the bites section.

    im lucky, my avic. has never shot poop at me. haha.
  16. For some reason I'd rather get bit than poo'd on by a T. {D
