I recently noticed that my budgies clean their own perches and toys. The first time I noticed, I was concerned they were just chewing on their own droppings. Then I realized, they are actually removing those droppings, & dropping them down to the floor, hence cleaning their own home!

Now, is this normal budgie behavior?

Or, do my baby budgies really have such brilliantly smart little pea-brains as to attempt to trick me into not disrupting their comfortable little lives by taking cage apart to clean it all?

((Insert big-eyed budgie grin here.))

(Btw, yes, I do clean it all anyway. Visible residue still remains in some spots and, obviously, they can't remove germs with their little beaks. ---Oh, and another smilie would go here.---)

My girl does that too

I'm not entirely sure if it's by accident, as they continue to walk on/use the toys and the stuff just gets brushed off, or if they're purposely annoyed by it and would rather it was clean

Either way, it's definitely amusing

My girl does that too. She doesn't poop on her toys or perches, but she does not like anything that might be "big chunks" - including any food that's bigger than what she prefers.

When she's out and on top of the vertical blinds in my home office or in the living room, she'll clean off the dried poop and throw it on the floor, then look at me.
