    Re: Any Tips?

    I am always looking for ideas as well. Here are a few things I have done though.
    I made a rope and put a little bucket at the end so he has to figure out a way to pull the rope up and get the treat himself. Here is a video I have of him doing it.

    Another thing I do, take 3 bottle caps and put a thumb tac through the top of it. Set them down and show your tiel which one you are putting the treat under. From here your options are open. You can move them around and see if your tiel followed "the prize".

    I have been teaching him how to fly since for now he isn't clipped. he knows how to fly up, down and slow down if he is going too fast. If only I had a bigger room I would make an obstacle course....

    I am trying to teach him now how to wave and say "hi". It isn't going over too well though.

    The problem is my parrot doesn't eat anything but bird food. She won't accept anything bigger than a small seed

    My little one has a trick that she loves to play..

    Its called drop the toys off my cage and mommy will pick them up and give them back.

    Its a load of fun, at least the first 200 times played.

    You could search on youtube. I have seen quite a few training videos there including clicker training.

    Does your bird like millet? You could use a little sprig of millet or take it off of the stalk as a reward.

    That is funny, but quite true!
