    I don't know how many bird owners actually potty train their birds. My suggestion would be for you to go on Youtube, and search for potty training birds. Maybe someone would post a video there that would be of help.

    I've homed birds for years, but never did pursue potty training them, so I don't have any suggestions myself.

    Welcome to the forum Rebecca. We love pics, so do post some of your little guy sometime at your convenience.

    We taught Boomer to go potty by holding him over paper or even the garbage can and telling him to go potty. If he was sitting on us and we did not hold him over something he would still poop on us. When you take him out of the cage they usually go potty. When he does this praise him with "good pottys". He will quickly learn what go potty means. They are smart and learn this quickly. Whatever you do don't scold him for pooping on you or anywhere else. I have read birds hold it at times and it can make them sick.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.
