Re: Right now Salty is.....

Salty has the pool thing down pat, I can put up a full rack of balls and he gets 'em all in a corner or side pocket in seconds. The bicycle thing.... whoh, very slow going. He is just now getting the idea of putting his feets on the perch pedals. Very slow going. And reading? shelved for now until he has more of the bike trick under his wing so to speak. I don't think it's productive to try and teach him several new tricks at the same time.

I need to find some new footie toys for his cage too, I think he's bored by what he has now. We had a few cage type baby rattles in there, but he broke the 'cage' part ( plastic) so they got chucked. He loves toys that make noise, so he can bang them around the cage.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Good job, Salty! I've been working on "thank you" with both parrots here. Scooter (CAG) just gives me a withering look that indicates "Why should I thank you for doing your duty as my servant?" Ralph responds with a cheerful graaaccckkk! which I interpret as Quaker language for thank you. Maybe they'll do better when I tell them about Salty's accomplishment.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Hi there,

Sometimes its just 'click' and they decide to say something. I do know that when Salty and I do our nightly training sessions, I always say Thank You when he hands me something as a part of a particular trick ( like a cup or a ball). Seeing as we do the training every single night now for the better part of 5 years, its only taken him oh say 1,500 times he's heard it to actually say it. Keep at it, you never know when it will 'click'. Do your guys practice to them selves? I know Salty kinda mumbles to himself in his cage.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Scooter will mumble early in the morning. I hear her chattering away softly when I'm washing my face and getting ready to start the day. Ralph doesn't mumble but he whispers new words along with me when I say them. I know very well that parrots don't always learn what you'd like them to, but instead may pick up some other words they hear that appeal to them. For over 30 years I tried to get George the YCA to say "good night" at bedtime and he never did. But after hearing me comment on the messy floor around his cage a few times, George quickly learned "What a slob!"
