Re: Teaching the Colours

Once your parrot understands that you are trying to teach him something, it becomes much easier for them to learn new tricks. Its like a light bulb goes off. It also helps to have a set time for training, so they know that schools in. Be 100% consistent in how you request a given trick. What ever your reward is, food, verbal praise or scratches, it should be given immediately after the trick is done, like right away, so they can associate the successful accomplishment with the reward. Break tricks into little segments. Example, Salty plays pool. But we started with first picking up the pool balls, then he and I pushed a ball into a pocket together, and finally he did it by himself. After that we worked our way up to a full rack of pool balls. You get the idea.

Saltys latest video from November is below. And there are many tricks we didn;t do in this one, he knows so many that I dont want to give him that many pine nuts in 1 session. OP, try that as your treat, most parrots LOVE them - Salty would paint my house for a pine nut.

See ALL Salty's Parrot trick videos on our CaptNiceGuy Channel:
AL & Salty - hard at work.
