This week we were asked two really important questions:
1. Why shouldn’t you leave food in your bird’s cage all day long and if you don’t, what SHOULD you do?
2. How do you put a trick on cue? (Get your bird to do something when YOU ask rather than when the birds feels like it)
Since I am actually in the training process with our blue throated macaw Jinx of putting his talking on cue (when he says the word Bubba which is his first word he has been willing to say in front of people) this was the perfect opportunity for me to share with you what the real training of it looks like. So pay close attention to when I click, when i DON’T, and when he earns a reward.
To learn more about the training diet and how to motivate your bird to train, check out One Day Miracles.
And make sure to check out our other free Bird Tricks Tuesday videos in case you feel like you’ve missed any.
As always, leave us feedback, comments, concerns and lots of QUESTIONS! So we have more to give you in the following weeks.
Happy BirdTricks Tuesday!
