What tricks does your parrot know? Don't include things like step up or letting you handle it, only behaviors that it knows on command. You may include speech or sounds that they mimic also.

Re: What tricks does your bird know?

Al that's awesome!
Henry knows target and turnaround. He also knows how to play pick up 52, as long as it's me doing the pick up's....
My daughter has already taught her baby lovebird to shake hands.

I need to do some work. We've been a slacking!

Re: What tricks does your bird know?

My GCC knows "dead bird" where we hold him in our hand, he lay on his back with his head hanging over the side with his eyes closed. We also do this thing with him where we hold him in our hands again and say either "Can I kiss you?" (then we give him a kiss. Or "Can I.... EAT YOU!" then we softly nibble his belly and he does his weird little repeated screech that sound like hes saying "NONONONONO". With our other sun conure Max, We say "upside down?" and she hangs upside down on one foot.

Here's where it gets a little impressive (for our birds at least). Nicky our CAG can say over thirty words/phrases and over ten different whistles. Here are some of her more common ones :
Helloooo
Gotta go to work!
I'll be back! *whistle and kissy noise*
STAAAHP IT!
Victory Whistle
Laaa da da
Bye Bye!
What.
catcall whistle
Water droplet noise whenever we drink something
A VERY high pitch whistle as a thank you when we give her a treat.

Thank you for sharing your bird's amazing skills

Re: What tricks does your bird know?

Oh my goodness Salty! What a good birdie! Thanks for that video.

I'm jealous of you all, with your training and tricks. Maybe when school starts I'll be able to work with Duke. He does seem to have a pretty good vocabulary though.

Mister Duke says
-can you talk?
-whatcha doin?
-what ARE you doing?
-HI Mister Duke
-pretty boy
-Hey Doug!
-I love you (a couple of different inflections)
-Oreo
-Hi Cop
-get outta there!
-don't want
-say goodnight
-go night-night
-I'll miss you
- wanna go outside?
- come out
- sunshine?
-hi kids
-don't bite (and don't bite the mother)
-is that good?
-you like that?
-be nice!
- no no no!
- d*mmit!
-don't chew on that
-whistle (says the word, then whistles.)

he does a nice loud wolf whistle, and we're working on the Andy Griffith theme.

there are more. I take no credit, it's all from my mother-in-law. It's nice to hear her voice through him. I want to teach him to say 'help, they turned me into a parrot!'

Re: What tricks does your bird know?

Poor Peanut doesn't talk, all she does is make fart noises. I don't know where she picked that up from, probably hanging around my husband too much. She also knows kisses and will make a kissing sound.

She knows "come here" and is actually better at it than the dogs, she knows "go night nights" when it's time for bed and she will lay in your hand and then hang off from one leg. She also caught and ate a fly once, but I don't know if that would be considered a trick.

Re: What tricks does your bird know?

The first couple tricks are hard to teach them, because they don't understand you are trying show them what they need to do to get the treat. Now, Salty knows we are going to do some thing new and gets excited, hoping from foot to foot. And he gets stuff in 2 or 3 tries. I think they enjoy learning new things. Salty swill even devise new things to do with some of the props. If you've seen the video of him flipping the ring over his head, he invented that, I didnt. And he came up with a second way to it , too, where he balances the ring on its end, and then he just walks thru it. Salty has a set time every night that we train, and heaven help me if I am late, he will raise a ruckus. I think training your parrot to do tricks help strength the trust.
