    If the poo looks normal, then it most likely is normal. Lots
    of times when this happens the bird is a hen. A hen will hold
    her poo for long periods of time and then release a massive
    amount especially when she's in the nest. She doesn't want to
    soil the nest so she holds it and then when she comes out she
    drops a large load. I've noticed that some of my pet hens will
    have a large load in the morning. Completely normal unless the
    poo looks to be an unhealthy color.
