I have one of my husband's old shirts that I use as a "poop shirt". I wear it when my Parrotlet is on my shoulder, but she doesn't poop very often compared to the bigger birds. I don't allow the other two on my shoulder, but when I'm holding them, I have a paper towel in my lap.
My Conure will poop on command -- "Make a poopie" -- she even says it! It's a good thing, because she poops every ten minutes!
As you might imagine, the bigger the bird, the bigger the poops! My new bird, a Hahn's Macaw, poops BIG, and compared to my Parrotlet, REAL BIG! LOL! He doesn't poop when I'm holding him though, which is GOOD.
Bird poop is part of the deal -- I just clean it up and go on! Actually, with 3 dogs (housebroken) and 3 birds, you might say poop is my LIFE!
