Nicole Richie should go and buy herself a lottery ticket or hit the poker table because she's dripping in good luck after being dumped on by a bird on her Italian vacation.
Richie displayed the remnants of a bird that dropped a giant deuce on her head while she was on a balcony.
The bird had excellent aim, getting its #2 all over the left side of her head, and Richie took it like a champ as hubby Joel Madden documented the whole thing.
Joel says it's good luck, coming from an old saying ... the more birds involved, the richer you'll be! So, next time a bird poops on you, remember that it's a good thing.
Celebs ... even they get sh*t on.
