Re: What's your bird smell like?

Noah can get pretty stinky if he doesn't bathe at least once a week. He gets this "aromatic", musky, broccoli and asparagus smell to him, or at least his head. Eww, and when the budgies were being brats and refused to bathe, it smelled disgusting in the aviary. Budgies have this sweet smell to them, and when I walked into their aviary the one day, it was overpowering. There was this heavy, sickeningly sweet smell in there, and I started to get a headache it was so bad.

Re: What's your bird smell like?

Hmm, my hedgehog used to smell distinctly like maple syrup, but I havent pinned down what the bird smells like yet. Its not bad, just unique.

Or when I'm feeding him fresh things, whatever he has all over his messy little feet

Re: What's your bird smell like?

Funny, I've smelled and sniffed my quaker many times and only catch a whiff of his food if he's eaten recently. Otherwise this bird has no smell as far as I can tell!

Re: What's your bird smell like?

Mine smells like an old dusty newspaper that has been sitting in a closet for years. I haven't introduced peanut to a bath yet, I suppose it's time.

Re: What's your bird smell like?

'Tiels and most 'Toos smell, to me, like sun-dried clothes.

Most macaws smell like dried fruit to me.

Most Amazons, to me, smell like fresh mown grass after the sun has been on it for a while.

Those are about all the consistent smells I've noticed.

As for the Rickeybird, he smells very lightly like chocolate bar wrappers. Not the bars... the wrappers.... especially the foil ones.

Re: What's your bird smell like?

My goffins smell like talcum powder.
Gonzo the BFA is flowers!
ET the TAG musky, like a macaw.
Alice the Citron like cooked oatmeal.

When wet, the odor becomes more musky
