Re: What tricks does your bird know?

Ok, proud parrot owner mode activated.... McCoy can spin, wave, lift his wings up a little bit, he will hop onto my hand, he bows, fluffs up his feathers and shakes his head - we call it the "shimmy shimmy", says "hello", "good boy", "what you doing?", "what you want?" and a couple of other things that I can't quite make out, but might be "who are you!?", he's started to say "oi!"! He picked all the talking up on his own, but will repeat them when asked to now. His recall (only inside) is ok, but I have to ask him when he wants to come to me, so it's very much on his own terms. We're working on sticking his tongue out. We've only just started step up training, because he's not keen and I'm a bit of a coward!

Re: What tricks does your bird know?

Hmm..well, mine will step up, flap her wings when I say "get the flappers going", do "upside-down bird" and hang off my fingers, peck at things when nearby objects are knocked, dance to songs, and then talk a lot...Recently, my dad taught her "what the f*ck" (despite everyone's opposition). That having been said, she uses it correctly in context....Thank God cockatoos generally have speech impediments compared to birds like greys haha!

Check out these great props I found at PetSmart today...they are made for hamsters but who cares! They also had a couch and a bed...
