    My eclectus isn’t even a year old yet and hes VERY good at not going potty
    on someone. Also when I take him to the petstore or just out of the house,
    he never has accident :)

    (I seriously don’t mean to brag.) My brother’s baby Blue and gold &
    Military Green hybrid baby sort of just holds it in. But being a baby, it
    has to go a lot, so when it does, it gets nippy, and in a mad mood, so we
    put him in his cage, he poops, and he’s willing to come back out again.

    am Really tired of cleaning after him when hes out and about and “doing his
    busniess” everywhere . how can i potty train him if noone can go near him
    right now

    Every time you bring your bird out of his cage, set him on the play stand
    or area you want him to go. Usually, they will go right away when you take
    them out of their cage. Then you give him a treat. Keep doing this, and
    watch his body language while you’re handling him to get him on that stand
    before he goes. Treat and praise every time. Find a few designated areas,
    so he doesn’t think that’s the ONLY place that he can go. Do not ever use a
    verbal command.

    What’s the best way to teach the to be free flight?

    U used this technique on my umbrella cockatoo when she was 4 or 5 and she
    learned to use our toilet in a couple days. now she either goes in her cage
    or the toilet and we’ve had no accidents in years.

    You’re lucky, mine shits on my fucking chest

  10. militaryqt says:

    Helpful video thank you very much. It is a shame that some people are so
    negative towards the awesome efforts you put forth to help other bird
    owners. It is hard to find anything on the internet to help you with
    training without giving them money for it. Thanks again!

    “Bombs away.” Hahahaha. Never heard that one before. :)

    @melisitaization i’ve got cockatiel recently not much of few weeks ago, she
    wasnt afraid at the pet shop but once she arrived home dad picked her
    wrong.. and then she started acting crazy/biting hard/flying away till now.
    but im training her n_n its getting a good progress. Get a hand gloves you
    know the yellow one so the beak wouldnt break into your skin and try
    holding the cockatiel/pet them.. you should do that in a small room so you
    won’t need to run.. it may need weeks :L good luck haha :X

  13. MusicxCherry says:

    Then how do you get them to go in a certain area?

    Hey Albert i’ve got a child for you mmm good nice and tasty you want it.

  17. Victoria Chew says:

    My budgie lifts it’s tail when it wants to poop. The annoying part is that
    when it does that the poop is stuck to the feathers and it hates the tissue
    cleaning it’s butt XD

    Bombs away….! Splash!

  19. Ilovemakemebad35 says:

    i hope this works on my sun conure!!!! he’s amazing, it’s just he likes to
    poop on the floor …

  20. kaspar12321 says:

    At 12 seconds my parrotlette pooped on me O.O

  21. GreenDestiny says:

    Why would it matter who is the “master” in this situation? Commands are one
    thing but this is about love and affection. They are more intelligent than
    dogs and I believe can distinguish between commands (don’t bite) and a
    simple request for affection. Don’t you want to make them happy? Do you
    enjoy responding and reciprocating the love? I assume yes…so feel good
    that your birds wants to be around you and “asks” you to be picked up
    instead of just flying and landing on your head. :)

  22. sheri9987 says:

    I use the command “Uh Oh” – that is an easy one for him to say.

  23. Mindbender94 says:

    How to know when they go poty

  29. Rafalgahr says:

    A good counter-leasure to this is to always let your bird go freely in its
    cage, it will figure out quickly that going potty freely outside the cage
    is bad, but that their cage is their place and that they can make a mess if
    they want to.

    @Dingo1144 your in egypt! cool!

  31. Todd March says:

    Actually I’ve trained teeny tiny parrotlets in a few days—it’s easy really;
    parrots are smart. What is hard is to remember to get the bird over the
    approved spot every 10-20 minutes or so, round the clock when the bird is
    out. Most potty training failures are about owners not gettng the bird over
    the approved spot, and expecting the bird to hold it as if it were a cocker

  32. RoarTP says:

    Gorgeous bird (:

  33. Fiona Cyrus says:

    thanks, very helpful

    Ty beautiful :)

  41. rick2003ar says:

    This was a good video but I’ve heard stories of birds being taught to use
    the bathroom on command and then not going when they need to leading to
    them getting sick or passing away. I have never taught a parrot to do this
    but its something that I would possibly caution just in case the parrot
    doesn’t realize that it can use the bathroom in its cage and not just when
    you tell it to. On the upside this is a great series on parrot training.

    lol bombs away

  44. Tayma Alastal says:

    My old parrot used to go to the cage when ever he needed to pee or poo xD I
    didn’t actually train him, he just did it himself 😀
