    Smile Young Budgie Training

    Well I got my Zippo two weeks ago, and he's only bout 8 weeks old now, so i was wondering what kind of training I can do with him because since he is so young he can take to it and learn it earlier.

    I already do "step-ups" with him, which he is good at. What else...? I don't think he's ready for trick training, but what other proper essential bird behaviors or manners...does he need to know?

    It would be nice to get some kind of other "tricks" other than step-ups in our training routines. ^_^

    Perhaps teach him how to wave? It's very simple. When he lifts his food to put it on your finger, pull your finger away and reward Zippo. Hope that helped! =).

    Also just instead of saying "Up" or "Step Up", say "wave" or somthing like that.
