I have a cockatiel that is 10 months old. I hand raised her from 3 weeks old. She chews on everything and poops everywhere. I love her to pieces but my husband wants to get rid of her because of this what can I do . How do I train her. I have tried training her to "go potty" on a newspaper on top of her cage when I see her squatting and everytime I take her out of the cage and I have tried puting her in her cage whenever she does something wrong but it is not working. She chews on wires, buttons on remotes. Anything rubber, paper, wood, plastic, shoelaces, zippers, toys. Basically anything she can get her beak on. She is out of her cage probably 4 to 5 hours a day. She is my baby. She follows me in the shower anywhere I go. As soon as she sees me she is marching to come out. In her cage she has 3 wooden perches, 1 swing and stairs, a cuttle bone and 3 toys. Her cage is 2 1/2 feet tall by 1 feet wide. I will try anything.
