I knew someone that had a lovebird that kept them out all the time. They hung a small cage on the wall and he would sleep in there and eat/drink but could come and go as he pleased.
I remember when I used to keep up with the bird poop everyday.
That feels like a long time ago. I admit now I see one and think "ehh, I'll get it later."
I know I'm not alone.

Well we all have to keep up with our public image but yes there are a few I ignore till later too... hehe

If it is a high traffic spot I will just put down a paper towel and change it out every now and then. I also keep a roll of toilet paper by my chair and clean as he goes anything in that area.

I am working on getting him to go on this one perch stand thing. He does go on it a lot and gets praise when I see it with a small treat. It is a work in progress but I have seen him fly over poop and then fly back to what he was doing but he also still just goes where he wants too most of the time.
