You might get more responses on the other forum, a lot of our members have made the switch. The new forum is at www.quakerparrotforum.com.

Bird poop really shouldn't smell too bad. I'm thinking that maybe a vet visit is in order, just to make sure his organs are functioning okay. Has his poop always smelled? How often do you clean his cage? What is the consistency of the poop (dry, extra watery, etc.) and what color is it? If it's yellowish and watery that can indicate a problem with his liver.
I just read your post in the cage cleaning thread....if his poop is watery, please get him to a vet. Bird poop really shouldn't have very much "liquid matter". It is generally moist, but not wet.

He sounds so much like the girl I just adopted, she does the bite and laugh and the "come in" when you knock. Not sure what to tell you about the rest...I've only had my girl a day but have owned other birds and they didn't have too bad of a smell. Does he eat a LOT of fruits and veggies? That might be the difference.

Excellent point, PrettyBabyRio!
I have copied and pasted this thread to the other forum. I'm now going to lock it here. Please go to www.quakerparrotforum.com and create an account there, and we can continue the discussion, and hopefully get more insight from other owners.
