Parrots will be parrots, I guess! Well, I don't think they dream, per-say, but Lord knows what goes around their little heads while they rest... (scientifically speaking, they don't sleep like mammals, but rather just rest, even if they do seem asleep). They really tend to make the weirdest connection - patterns, colours, texture, shape.... Even completely unrelated bad experience, and they connect to every day's items or routine.DO parrots dream, ya think? I'm trying to figure out why, after years of training with some small animal figures ( 3 parrots, a bear, a lamb, a bell and a small ball) all of a sudden Salty treats them like they are radioactive. Or other changes in their personality. Could a bad dream about these props make him super cautious in approaching them? We've worked with these props for years now, and this is new behavior.
We've all read on here how one amazon suddenly did a hard 180 on his fav person, and its taken years for this fella to get the 'zon to come even close to re-accepting him. Why do they do this? I'd love to know.
