Has anyone had luck potty-training their bird perfectly?

Postby GeorgeMendes » Wed May 08, 2019 7:23 am

By this I mean training your bird to go to a certain potty area BY HIM/HERSELF and poo there without needing you or anyone else to help them. Basically, like how dogs and cats are potty-trained. I've read about owners training their birds to go on command like "go poop!" poop but haven't heard anything about them going on their own. Is there a reason, or is it just much harder to teach them? If you have managed to potty-train your bird perfectly, how did you do it? Thanks all!https://discord.software/ fetLife itunes

It can work well but not perfectly.

I strongly urge everybody not to even attempt to train a bird to hold its poop. It's so unhealthy for them... Dangerous even because it can cause cloacal prolapse which requires surgery and, sometimes, even reconstruction of the intestine. And, let's face it, if a little poop bothers you so much, you should most definitely NOT have a bird.
