what gifts you give during exercise?

Postby abang_nanda » Sat Mar 16, 2013 3:56 pm

apologize in advance
I want to ask
as long as you train your parrot
reward (food) what did you give?
I gave the corn to my parrot
but it is quite difficult, because they just take the content of the corn
and he left her skin and dropped it on the floor
what you guys have any other alternatives?

thanks in advance

Maybe almonds or sunflower seeds? apple seems to be a favorite of birds, too. If you want you can offer a few little treats in your palm and see which one(s) your birds go for the most. if the treats you decide on using are in their food mix, make sure you remove all of the certain treat so that they only receive it when they are training, making it more special and rewarding.

good luck, I hope I helped. :thumbsup:
If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.
