Parrots can’t swim. Early on we taught our gray to ‘poop’ on command by saying the word whenever he pooped. Later he started saying it himself as he went, then, I got him to say it before he did it by getting to him as he started to squat, then repeatedly saying it before he did it by getting him to step up (keeping him busy so he didn’t poop yet), he automatically steps up when a finger is placed in front of him. Bingo; a parrot that tells you he’s about to poop, and you have time to get him back to his cage door (ours is like a drawbridge, has a plastic mat under to catch the poop). Just don’t say the word if he’s sitting on your shoulder! Even another person saying it can trigger the bird to dump on you! Shithra 25/03/2015 Really bad idea to potty train a bird. A bird can’t hold it. It’s unhealthy. They have to go when they have to go, there is no waiting, and it’s where-ever they happen to be. The longer the bird waits, the more toxins build up in their body. They have VERY efficient bodies(more efficient than ours), and thus toxins must be excreted as soon as possible. If you can’t handle bird poop, don’t have them. Plain and simple. IdarkphoenixI 25/03/2015 Slow day at the local news studio again. msnbc? Oh….. birdlady423 25/03/2015 My cockatoo Geronimo is also potty trained, but I just hold him over the toilet. CUTE VIDEO! Wendy Gunter 25/03/2015 I have an African Grey too and since the first day we got her Every time she poops we just say “poop”. She eventually learns what it means. Now we can hold her over the toilet or trash say “poop” and if she has to go (which is usually a yes since birds poop often) she goes. Cayla Standifird 25/03/2015 That’s impossible the bird has no control on it’s bathroom Skills I read it in a book it is impossible to potty train any bird Alison Pointing 25/03/2015 My cockatiel is potty trained too… Just goes to show, it’s not the most amazing thing for a breed as intelligent as the African Grey can do… Diane leach 25/03/2015 Ive seen it all now! 483Emma 25/03/2015 “Wow really wasn’t expecting a reply for posting such a minor comment” NayOnFrames 25/03/2015 I WANT ONE.

EZcheez 25/03/2015 how does she know when he wants to poop fissoello 25/03/2015 Man, dude.. That’s pretty darn racist. Had a bad day? Robin klantarn 25/03/2015 lol? hahaha fail if the parrot had learned it then it would fly there himself. my parrot does that to when i put him there… wendym1234 25/03/2015 They are really smart birds! Instinct tells them to go randomly, but just like us- they can be trained to control the behavior of pooping! If you know your own bird’s poop routine and don’t ask it to hold it in then I say this is a cool thing! I’ve seen a few websites and videos on this so I believe it’s true! Bob crabs 25/03/2015 i find it funny how some people are amazed by this while bird owners are like “eh, Its not that amazing…” XD Brieana Hill 25/03/2015 shut up i have a hyanith macaw the largest of all of them and guess what he poops on comand with the proper training its possible hasan nehir 25/03/2015 my atie has these african birds cockatoosmom 25/03/2015 I have several cockatoos that are potty trained.
