Now, when it comes to actually the potty training process, you can't really do it the same way that you teach normal tricks such as clicking and giving a treat. That's known to make parrots hold it in for too long and that can actually hurt their digestive system.

is one of the easiest yet results oriented behavior training methods for parrots. After getting the treats, the owner can use the clicker to condition the bird to associate a given sound with a certain treat.
