Pineapple Green Cheek Conure
Hi,
We recently added to our family a Pineapple Green Cheek Conure. She's on a veggie pellet diet....... ( before us she was on a seed and pellet)
Anyway, when I want to train for 2 or 3 mins with treats. She goes NUTS! I can't even get the treats because if she knows there wherever .... She's right there climbing down up around etc.
Do you think I should try a one second training session? Or should I try and find something she's interested in but not to the extent of waffle wet seeds?
Anyway any input will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks😊

Try another reward, scritch, toy, etc? That she would want?
Or just a less rewarding treat. Try safflower seeds. They have a lower fat content and birds don't like them as much, but still will work for it as a reward.

Thanks foxgloveparrot! I'll try a toy or something. Maybe I just have to go slower.
I've been giving her safflower seeds she loves those as much as anything😂
