amazed by your bird?

As a brief update, my Galah Valentine is doing great. Started target training with all 3 birds and while the two Eclectus picked the concept of touching the chopstick right off the bat.... my goofy boy (Gooficus is his nickname) prefers to try to eat the stick. We got work to do there lol. Anyway, He is so entertaining and has an extensive vocabulary which blows me away ESP at his age.

He really amazed me yesterday and I wanted to share. I tell them bye bye before I leave for work in the mornings and yesterday, in response, Valentine says clear as day "where ya going??" He has never ever said this before much less in context lol. I was blown away. So I told him I was going to work, that I loved him and would see him that afternoon lol

These birds are so amazing. I thought this would be a fun topic to share - what has your fid done that just had you amazed at them?

Re: amazed by your bird?

They are indeed amazing! Glad to see your flock is responding to training so well.

The bird I handle most is Gabby, my first-born Goffin. He's taken to potty training lately and has definitely learned the cue. He generally tenses a few seconds before relieving, so I quickly move him to a toilet, trash bin, or his cage and say "do a "xxx." Well, the actual word is a certain person! 90% of the time this strategy works, though at times he'll just surprise.

It's incredible how smart they are. When Rio first started talking he did so in context and I was amazed.

Sounds you've got an incredible flock there

Re: amazed by your bird?

Henry and Clarke are both chatty. Clarke mimic's Henry, but Henry is often situational appropriate. Clarke came to us with issues, and wont do hands whatsoever. So every time he takes a treat from our fingers/steps up on our arms, Henry yells a super clear over excited much like a parent toilet training a toddler "Good BOOOYYY!"

Gets us every time

Holding a bowl of popcorn, Nigel looks at me and says, "Nigel wants some popcorn."

Yes, he gets the popcorn!
