Birds feces is taahir (pure) as there is no Sharia evidence to suggest that these things are naajis (impure). The feces of birds whose meat may be eaten is taahir (pure), and does not have to be washed off if it gets onto one’s clothes or body, or on the carpet, and there is nothing wrong with praying in these clothes or on this carpet. There is evidence that the same is true for the urine and dung of animals whose flesh may be eaten such as sheep, cows, horses and so on.
