Hi Guys!

I hope your all well,

Rio my african Grey is doing well, I'm slightly confused in regards to toilet training him, as when I'm home I let him out of his cage and his fine, my issue is if I train him ie, with a tray on the side do I leave the cage open ???? is it safe and healthy for the bird to be trained so confused!!!!, also he is now 3 months I am giving a mixture of seeds fruits, veg, can I give him dried chilli's, and what about bread etc.

Many many thanks to whoever reads and replies... X

I have one potty trained bird and it worries me. He well only poop when in his cage. So that means he can not have a lot of play stand time. Or a lot of time on me.
So none of my others are potty trained. The problem with training on que is some well only go when told. The problem with only in the cage is then they only poo in the cage.
If keeping poop off you is important I would get a poop suit or use a parrot shoulder wrap or have a something you put on over yourself like an old shirt.
Good luck

I personally would never potty train a bird. I think it's unnatural myself and birds have been known to hold it if they don't get to go which I really wouldn't like
