One of my lorikeets larry poops when he doesn't want to do something like yesterday I waited till he pooped and then took him over to my mum to perch onn and since larry hasn't really socialised with her larry pooped on my mum :D then this little girl from next door wanted larry to go on her shoulder and larry pooped :D But hasn't pooped one me since last year. So he is using pooping to say no

Too Often / Poop Spamming

I have a totally different problem. My two White Bellied Caiques are potty trained and poop at a specific perch but unless they are very interested/busy with something else they go there every 2 minutes to squeeze out a tiny little droplet to get treats. If I don't treat them they loose interest and start pooping wherever. It's almost like I'm their robotic treat slave. Would love for them to poop at a normal interval like my other potty trained birds :/ (two Green Cheeks).

My Red Belly is fairly potty trained even though my only training was to wipe the poop off me and she learned from that. With my newest parrot Sunny he pooped on me all the time, but he also just learned not to poop on me on his own this week, so hoping I remain mostly poop
