Puts his harness on
walks thru 2 4" rings
walks thru 3 rings
Flips rings over his head
balances ring on its end and walks thru it
I hide a treat under a rag and he finds it and give the rag back to me
he does all sorts of trick with small colored rings
He has a special bowl and he will put a wifile ball, various small animals, a carrot, a bell, a huge rubber ball, all into the bowl, and the give them back to me
Plays 3 card Monty with ,me
Rolls over
spins in place
climbs a 2 foot ladder and down again
slides down his slide I made him.

And we are always working on NEW tricks for him so he does not get bored. We are very proud of our litter parrot
Thank you for this list!! I was running out of ideas for Cairo, so I kept watching Salty's training videos Now I just need to figure out how to show them to Cairo....

Re: Right now Salty is.....

A goood place to pick up props is any baby store or the babysection of a toy store. Pick one trick and work on that until cairo gets it down. An esy one is to hide a treat under a small wash cloth and let him find it and give the cloth bavk to you. zzzyhe first couple of tricks are the hardest for them to get it, as they dont reallize you are 'eaching' them, but after that itwill come more natually. Parrots love to learn new tings are some are like sponges.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Ahoy members ! Salty and I wish everyone a Happy New Year, albeit a bit late. I've had some medical set backs recently, with no heart to read or post much, but am doing better and we hope to become familiar with all the new members ( many of them !) and refreshing with our old and trusted ones. I have to give mad props to my daughter, who is not a bird person and not really a Dad person either but she has done a 180 and has been super helpful to us. Love ya Kussie. Now if we can only get Salty to love you as much as I do !

Salty has taken to calling for our Cairne Terrier, Tinker, lately, just before dinner. "Here, Puppy", "Come Tinker!" and "Good Doggie" , all in Geri's voice. Greys and budgies may say more, but I think Amazons really sound like a specific person when they mimic someone.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Salty has also started to do something new - he washes off his cage footie toys in his water bowl before he plays with them. Pretty funny to watch. And then proceeds to throw the sopping wet toys out the door of his cage and onto the floor. Not so funny to watch.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Welcome back Sailor, you have been missed!

I'm guessing that the surgery went well and you are recovering, a bit slower than you or Salty would like. To that, just remember, that being on the surface has earthy merit to being under it. So from our vantage point, its Great having you about!

Not seen that specific behavior before, likely Salty just being helpful, or not!

Again Welcome Back Sailor! May your winds be steady and from the stern.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Happy Belated New Year to you, too! Great to see you and Salty back, Al! And I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better than you were. As Steven said, you've definitely been missed.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

'Boats, Salty continually amazes us with original thinking and actions. Just like this new business of washing his footie toys and some of the tricks he does - he is the one who put thought into action. Not I.

Salty has also been singing a lot more than usual. Like most Amazons, he has always done a bit of 'Zon song but he's been making the songs longer and repeating the songs from day to day - complete with vibrato. Even though Salty has learned all of his tricks, we have never trained him to speak or sing or laugh on a command; I might rethink that, it's such a pleasure to listen to him belting out the favorites.

Has anyone else on here trained their parrot to sing, talk or laugh on command ?

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Not on command, though Japie will give me (or one of the other parrots) a wolfwhistle when anyones does something 'right'.

It is almost a race when I am working with one of the others who is first... me with "well done!!" or Japie with his "pfhiiehieieieieuw".

(I just got a whistle when I *finally* gave him his supper...)

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Charmed' if you have a tablet or a laptop, let Cairo watch the specific video ( or section of one) for the trick you are trying to teach him. Parrots can definately see digital screens ( but not old style scanning tube type TV screens) and can learn from watching and listening to the parrots on screen. I think phone screens are too small for thm to make the connection between the bird on screen and themselves.

Salty has learned a number of phrases and actions from watching Youtube videos and he has his favorite types and even individuals he likes more than others. Another training tip - always be consistent in the way you request a given trick or action, so your bird does not get confused.

We would love to see some videos of Cairo in action !
