Re: Recall training frustrations

WOW Chris, thats great info , in fact its stickie worthy. Your experience with Parker will help many whoare training for flight.

Fay I can only suggest that consistency in your commands is essential. Whether its a verbal or hand signal ( I use that) using differnt triggers for the same action really can confuse a parrot. Looking forward to seeing the videos !

Re: Recall training frustrations

Lol thank you sir. Hardly a model, I donít have Parker very reliable, and he only ever goes no more than 6 feet hortizontally, no ups or downs, no through doorways, but thatís probably because heís flightless 9 months out of the year so many people, even here, have recall down much better than I.

Iím so happy to hear this! Your thread gave me motivation to start training Parker in advance of his feathers growing in. Heís a barberer who molyís every July/August. He leaves new feathers alone until Christmas then destroys chest, tail, and primary feathers so becomes flightless from Christmas - August.

Normally I wait until heís fully flighted before jumping on recall training again. But he can still leap 12 inches or so. And heís been begging for it lately, so weíre on it early this year, thanks to you!

Re: Recall training frustrations

we're at four feet and counting!

I stuck with it, went slow, and made sure he didn't eat before training sessions

so proud lol
