Okay. Now, when it comes to potty training your parrot, the thing you need to realize is that birds are wild animals. They're going to poop every 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the species. So, the first thing you got to do is get out of your mind that you're going to have a perfect potty train that'll never poop on anything. Because no matter how good of a job you do, accidents will still happen.
So, stock up on good cleaning supplies: a wetvac, a mop, anything you can use to clean your parrots nest is good. The less of a big deal you make about the parrot making a mess, the less you're going to encourage any of that type of behavior.
Another strategy is to keep the parrot on parrot-approved places, like this tree right here. The bottom is made to be easy to clean. So, if the parrots spent a lot of their time on parrot places instead of on human furniture, you're less likely to have a mess throughout your house. Part of the strategy for keeping your parent on parrot-approved places is to do a lot of training, like the tricks we've been going over.
If you teach your parrots tricks on their training arches and trees, they're more familiar with spending time on those places and their more likely to go over to them when they're out and about. Now, when it comes to actually the potty training process, you can't really do it the same way that you teach normal tricks such as clicking and giving a treat. That's known to make parrots hold it in for too long and that can actually hurt their digestive system.
So, instead, it's important to encourage the parrot to poop on it's designated places but not mandate it. So, the strategy is to realize how long between poops that your bird goes. If you realize that you have a small bird and it goes every five minutes, that's going to be the number you go for. The bigger bird might be half an hour. But these guys, maybe about 15 minutes.
So, what Im going to do, when I want to just spend time with my bird, I want to have him on my shoulder, on me, I will hold them and make sure that I'm not spending more than the allotted time between when they go to do their business. So, I might pick up the bird and hold it for ten minutes. Knowing that they're going to poop in 15. Play with them, do whatever I want to do with my pet.
Then, I'm going to go and put them back down on their stand after ten minutes elapses. Now, I'm going to wait five minutes until they finally take their poop, whatever that comes out to. And as soon as they do, I'm going to make a big deal. Be like "Wow, that was very good! That's great!" And I'll come back over and pick up the bird and spend more time with it again.
And then ten minutes goes by. I feel like a next poop is due. Before it can happen, I'll put her back down on the perch and wait until she does it. After you do this for a couple weeks or months, your parrot will catch on that the sooner they do their business when they're put down, the sooner you'll pick them up and keep spending time with them.
So, they learn to naturally do more of they're business around their perches instead of on you or on unapproved human furniture areas. If your parrot wings aren't clip and they're flighted, they can even learn to fly back to they're stand when they need to go, which is really convenient if you lose track of timing. If they're familiar and accustomed to pooping on their stand, they'll fly over when they need to go.
The last thing you can do to encourage your parrot do it's business on it's poopy perch is when you take it out first thing in the morning, put it down on it's perch and wait until it's goes. Most parrots hold it in at night and they have to go really bad in the morning and they try to avoid going in their cages.
So, as soon as you take them out, put them right down on their poopy perch and let them go. And after they're done, you can pick them up and do your normal routine with them. This way, they learn to go to that designated place and to hold it in until you put them down and it's time to do it. So, that's some tips for you about potty training your parrot.
my parrot poop were ever he wants he would fly all the way to the third floor, hop on the carpet to my room and then poop on my bed after he will hop alllll the way to the first floor into his cage lol

Question: Since birds don’t want to do their business in their cages, what do they do while I’m gone? I mean, I do sometimes have to go places where I can’t bring a bird. Does it hold it in until I come home and put it on its poop perch?
And what if I want to take my bird somewhere? Can I teach a bird to poop over a trash can? xD Or would bringing a small hand-held perch work?
Smart birdies 0^0 so they will basically attempt to fly to their ''toilet'' but accidents can happen if the parrot is busy doing something or it doesn't get there in time ? so basically just like humans
My boy is now 2 but he can make use of the potty by himself. It was made possibly by this potty training process “rumza fetching shocking” (Google it). I am going to give birth to a new baby this December and I am now much ready to potty train my new little one! I`ll be certain to recommend this guide to any individual.
How can I encourage my lovebird to go in her cage in the morning? She holds her first poop in all morning and goes as soon as she's out. It's the biggest mess. I don't have her a tree stand perch because all the ones I find online are 300 plus dollars.
I don’t have a bird but I have wanted one for years I have had 2 hams 4 1 of them 1 month 1/2 the other since July And a few other pets so I would consider myself responsible and I sit my friends pets and my mother had 2 parrots when she was older than me I would want a medium size though after watching these videos and my cuzin has or has 2 parakeets I love these videos though
my senegal learnt to say "poops" at a year and a half. he automatically associated it with needing to go to the bathroom.he now says "poops" when he needs to go. he also holds it for some times an hour at a time by choice.
how easy is it too teach them to go to their place to potty? if you get them out and lose track of time, and they need to go... so they just go to their place and potty? I know it's a slow process, but is that a reliable method?
Direwolf202 AJ from reading your comment I can tell that you know nothing about birds. Even birds that aren't from a pet store can fly away. Read about them a bit first instead of asking in the comments. Your going to get a better answer off of google than you would in a comment section.
